Dissecting the IMF-FSB Early Warning Exercise
Given its systemically sensitive nature, little is known of the processes and outputs of the exercise. This session is meant to dissect the FSB and the early warning exercise, discuss with CSOs the challenges inherent in the process, highlight areas of concern, and seek CSO feedback on proposed recommendations to streamline and improve the efficacy of the exercise.
