In July 2020, the Global Financial Markets Center’s The FinReg Blog launched a month-long special issue that reflects the complex, international, and interdisciplinary interaction between climate change, financial markets, and financial stability. The Climate Change and Financial Markets special issue includes scholarship and analysis from practitioners and researchers spanning multiple disciplines and institutional contexts. The pieces address distinct aspects of climate change and financial markets, including issues relating to Risk Measurement and Management, Regulation and Supervision, Corporate Governance, Monetary Policy, Environmental Justice, Macroeconomics of Climate and Health Crises, and Market Adaptation and Financial Innovation.
Together, the posts in this special issue highlight promising approaches to climate-related financial risk, regulation, and innovation and the need for collaboration among interdisciplinary researchers, financial industry practitioners, and policymakers in addressing this topic of critical importance to economic and environmental resilience. Published pieces are available here.
