This program is not open for registration. Please contact if you are interested in this program.

Program Objectives

This cross-cutting program is aimed at helping regulators and supervisors identify the risks that climate change and other environmental factors pose to financial institutions, economies, and consumers and steps that can be taken to deal with these risks. It will examine the nature of the risks and their potential effects, including on vulnerable groups. 

The program will identify steps that can be taken by financial institutions and supervisors to deal with prudential risks, such as changing their approaches to product design, investment, and lending, and strengthening risk management and stress testing. It will also highlight steps that can be taken to deal with risks to consumers, such as improving financial literacy and financial inclusion. 

The program will include technical vignettes, group activities, and mini-case studies. It will include sessions on how to develop action plans to deal with climate change and other environmental risks, and how to identify and communicate effectively with key stakeholders to achieve results.

Who Should Attend?

The program is designed for mid- to senior-level staff and managers involved in regulatory and supervisory activities. It might also be relevant to individuals working at central banks and government ministries whose responsibilities relate to the topics that will be covered. Participants should have at least three years of working experience in financial sector supervision, analysis, or policy.

Registration for this program is by invitation only.
