On 31 March 2022, the Financial Stability Board (FSB) published its work programme for 2022.
Priority areas for the FSB include:
- Supporting international cooperation and coordination on current financial stability issues. Against the backdrop of the Russia-Ukraine conflict and its economic impacts, the FSB is reinforcing its forward-looking monitoring to identify, assess and address new and emerging risks to global financial stability.
- Advancing its work on strengthening the resilience of non-bank financial intermediation.
- Continuing work on the financial stability and regulatory and supervisory implications of technological innovation, with a particular focus on various forms of crypto-assets, including decentralised finance (DeFi). Work will also continue on enhancing operational and cyber resilience.
- Continuing its work to address the financial risks from climate change as per its roadmap. The FSB’s own initiatives under its roadmap include building and strengthening the analytical basis for monitoring climate related risks to financial stability; and identifying regulatory and supervisory approaches to address climate-related financial risks.
The FSB has also produced an indicative timeline of key FSB publications planned for 2022.
