Abstract

The purpose of this article is to identify the appropriate instruments, which can reduce the risk of noncatastrophic weather changes. The text consists of two parts. The first part is theoretical, and introduces the issue of weather derivatives. It focuses on the aspects of the definitional and classification of weather risk and the effects of adverse weather conditions in the various sectors, with particular emphasis on tourism. The second part presents the description of weather derivatives as a special kind of derivative instruments, and provides practical examples of its application in the tourism industry, in order to show that the physical control of weather risk is possible. In conclusion, several important research problems that require research and study in the context of weather risk management in the tourism industry of the region of Lodz are formulated.
