OECD Workshop on Climate Transition Scenarios

The OECD Workshop on Climate Transition Scenarios: integrating models into risk assessment under uncertainty and the cost of delayed action will take place virtually on 6 July 2022 and will examine in more details key issues for financial supervisors, market participants and policy makers to use climate transition scenarios to assess climate risks under uncertainty. The workshop will notably discuss modelling issues and assumptions associated with assessing the cost of a delayed transition, included linked to stranded assets. It will also discuss key issues to integrate climate transition scenarios and modelling into financial risk assessment.


The workshop held by the OECD Committee on Financial Markets (CMF) will gather climate modellers and economists, climate policy makers as well as representatives from central banks, financial supervisors, banks, asset managers, pension funds, insurers, data providers, civil society and academia.
