FSB Work Programme for 2022
The FSB 2022 work programme aims to maximise the value of the FSB’s global and cross-sectoral approach to financial stability policy.
This work programme details the FSB’s planned work and provides an indicative timeline of main publications for 2022. The FSB’s work priorities reflect that financial challenges are global in nature and affect the financial system as a whole. These challenges include digitalisation, climate change and potentially also shifts in the macroeconomic and interest rate environment.
Priority areas of work and new initiatives 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. This enhanced monitoring is informed by the FSB’s new surveillance framework. Work will also continue on policy responses to COVID-19, including: sharing information on policy responses and the timely unwinding of the temporary measures adopted in response to COVID-19, and assessing the effectiveness of those measures; and monitoring, with the standard-setting bodies (SSBs), the use of flexibility within international standards and consistency of policy responses with existing international financial standards.
Enhancing the resilience of the non-bank financial intermediation (NBFI) sector, while preserving its benefits. The FSB will advance its work programme for strengthening the resilience of NBFI. In addition to the remaining work on specific issues identified in the holistic review of the March 2020 market turmoil, the FSB will also focus on developing a systemic approach to NBFI.
Enhancing cross-border payments. The FSB will continue to coordinate with the Committee on Payments and Market Infrastructures and other SSBs and international organisations in implementing the FSB roadmap to enhance cross-border payments.
Harnessing the benefits of digital innovation while containing its risks. The FSB will continue 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.
Addressing financial risks from climate change. The FSB’s work on addressing climate-related financial risks is guided by its roadmap for addressing climate-related financial risks. The FSB will continue to coordinate international work through the 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.
