Climate risk and financial stability with Banco Central do Brasil
As financial sector authorities around the world develop tools to protect financial systems from the risks associated with climate change, the Banco Central do Brasil is no exception. In Brazil, home to most of the Amazon rainforest, the central bank has been implementing measures focused on sustainability over the past few years and recently published its first climate risk evaluation exercise as part of its Financial Stability Report.
Roberto Nygaard, head of the systemic division in the financial system monitoring department, and Fernando Linardi, systemic risk coordinator, join the Sustainable Policy Institute to discuss the BCB’s work on stress testing and scenario analysis tools.
