Melbourne, 7 and 8 November:
The Global NPO Coalition on FATF took part in the 'No Money for Terror' conference, a two-day event following on from the one convened by French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris in 2018. The Coalition's presence was facilitated by The Australian Council for International Development (ACFID). It was represented by its co-chairs, Lia van Broekhoven (Human Security Collective) and Kay Guinane (Charity & Security Network), and members Ira Novita (PINGO, Indonesia) and Bridi Rice (ACFID). A session on 8 November focussed on NPOs (‘Ways to strengthen and prevent the exploitation of the not-for-profit sector for terrorism purposes, including through risk assessments, education and outreach activities’). NPOs and the private sector had ‘observer’ status at this session. Read the statement the Global NPO Coalition on FATF prepared for the event (circulated to delegates).
