The insurance industry has an interest in selling policies against natural hazards and is promoting them in a targeted manner. However, the GDV rejects any obligation to insure against natural hazards. In some areas, the policies are less urgent as the likelihood of flooding is low. Other endangered locations, for example on rivers, can hardly be insured. The providers held back on the question of whether natural hazard policies could become more expensive after the flood. It is still too early for an answer.
