Does the FATF Help or Hinder Financial Inclusion?

Center for Global Development (Mike Pisa) Does the FATF Help or Hinder Financial Inclusion?: A Study of FATF Mutual Evaluation Reports

The report examines whether the Financial Action Task Force’s (FATF) Risk Based Assessment (RBA) approach helps developing countries implement its anti-money laundering (AML) and countering the financing of terrorism (CFT) standards without increasing financial exclusion.

The Global NPO Coalition held a webinar on this publication on July 9, 2019, with Mike Pisa (CGDeV) presenting the main findings of the report and Vanja Skoric (ECNL) explaining the FATF evaluation cycle in more detail, followed by participant Q &As.
