Announcement Date: November 29, 2018
November 29, Buenos Aires, Argentina: The Global NPO Coalition on FATF, supported by OSF and with technical advice from ICNL/ECNL, launched the first sectoral risk assessment for NPOs. The initiative aims to set out terrorism financing, money laundering and corruption risks facing NPOs in Argentina and Mexico. It will also cover organizational accountability and transparency practices.
The methodology will be based on Greenacre Group’s (UK) proposal, adapted to the Latin American regional context, in order to be replicable and produce comparable results. The data will be of use for advocacy purposes and to decision makers alike, specially within the contexts of governments participating in GAFILAT (the FATF regional body for Latin America).
