Virtual : Vulnerability Diagnostics (VDS)

Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:

  • Assess risks using fiscal, financial, external, and real sectors’ vulnerability indicators.
  • Describe how vulnerabilities can morph into distress, leading to crises as a result of adverse shocks or a flawed policy mix.
  • Use diagnostic tools (including tools currently employed in IMF surveillance), to track multi-sectoral vulnerabilities and predict indicators of tail risks.

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