The availability of data with which to monitor and assess climate related risks to financial stability

Climate-related risks differ from other risks to financial stability. They are global in nature, but their effects differ substantially across entities, sectors and economies, depending on their locations and activities. Climate-related risks may be highly non-linear, and their effects on the financial system subject to substantial uncertainty and tail-risk.

 

This report examines the availability of data with which to monitor and assess climate-related risks to financial stability. It is the latest in a series of FSB reports concerning climate change. These include the FSB’s stocktake of financial authorities’ experience in including climate risks as part of their financial stability monitoring, which was published in June 2020; and The Implications of Climate Change for Financial Stability, which was published in November 2020.
