The Fund’s Financial Sector Assessment Programme already regularly examines the resilience of banks and other institutions, including stress tests to better gauge systemic risks. These procedures are being retooled to incorporate climate risk analysis to better gauge financial stability risks from climate change.

“Risk analysis typically entails the development of scenario-based stress tests for assessing bank solvency. The process incorporates adverse macroeconomic scenarios specifically designed for the tests including elements like an economic contraction, rising unemployment, exchange-rate shocks, and falling asset prices.”JAMB Result
