Assessing and Managing Credit Risk from Contingent Liabilities: A Focus on Government Guarantees

This one-week workshop will help government risk managers in identifying and classifying the key types of Contingent Liabilities (CLs) countries are exposed to and the key characteristics of a government’s risk exposure. In addition to providing participants with a framework for CL risk management, the training will primarily focus on assessing and managing risks from government guarantees. The training is highly interactive, delivered through a combination of presentations, case studies and hands-on exercises. Participants put the lessons learned in the presentations into practice through case studies, group work and hands-on exercises. The presentations serve to provide a framework for thinking through the risk management issues, to provide some basic understanding of technical issues, and to serve as a base for the hands-on portion of the training.
