Vulnerability Diagnostics (JV18.10)

VDS

TARGET GROUP | Officials of all levels in central banks and ministries of finance who monitor and assess country and regional vulnerabilities and risks. Participants are expected to have an advanced degree in economics or equivalent experience, a basic background in econometrics, and familiarity with the use of software for econometric applications.

 

DESCRIPTION | This two-week course, presented by the IMF’s Institute for Capacity Development, complements the Macroeconomic Diagnostics (MDS) course by enhancing participants’ ability to assess fiscal, financial, and external vulnerabilities in an integrated fashion using several diagnostic tools to capture tail risks.

 

The course teaches participants to:

• Identify effective measures of fiscal, financial, and external vulnerabilities

• Describe how vulnerabilities can arise as a result of adverse shocks or flawed policies, and how vulnerabilities can morph into crises

• Use diagnostic tools to track vulnerability measures and predict indicators of tail risks, such as the tools currently employed in IMF surveillance

• Adapt diagnostic tools to their country data, organized as templates of country vulnerability reports
