Our Mission

The Guy Carpenter Asia-Pacific Climate Impact Centre (GCACIC) was established in June 2008 through a donation from Guy Carpenter and Company and matching funding from the Universities Grants Committee of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government and City University of Hong Kong.

The mission of the Centre is to become a leading centre in the Asia-Pacific region in research on climate-related perils, particularly those in the region. The research of the Centre focuses on enhancing the understanding of climate-related perils occurring in the Asia-Pacific region and of catastrophic risk throughout the region, as well as making predictions of the occurrence of climate-related perils in the region.
