Within the 2017 ECOSOC Forum on Financing for Development follow-up (FfD Forum)

Organized by: UNCTAD, Eurodad – Co-organized through the Addis CSO group

Summary: The event provides an opportunity to discuss up-to-date ways to monitor financial conditions in emerging and frontier markets, including LDCs and small island developing states. In the context of rising concerns about financial vulnerabilities in many developing countries, the improved ability of governments to monitor early signs of financial distress is essential to help prevent serious financial stress. The event will bring together experts and policy-makers to discuss the increasing complexities of financial markets, including interlinkages between shadow banking and more conventional forms of banking. The event will include a brief presentation by UNCTAD of its new financial conditions indicators for developing countries, followed by a panel discussion on the nature of financial vulnerabilities in developing economies and methods to monitor financial distress effectively under conditions of imperfect data quality.
