GCTF Initiative on Ensuring Implementation of Countering the Financing of Terrorism Measures While Safeguarding Civic Space
The Global Counterterrorism Forum (GCTF) has launched an initiative on ‘Ensuring the Effective Implementation of Countering the Financing of Terrorism Measures While Safeguarding Civic Space'. This is being co-led by The Netherlands, Morocco and the UN Office of Counter-terrorism (UNOCT), and implemented by the Global Center on Cooperative Security. It envisages the development of a GCTF good practices memorandum on implementing effective and risk-based CFT measures that avoid negatively affecting civic space and humanitarian operations. Global multi-stakeholder consultations have been planned, and the NPO Coalition is monitoring this process and engaging with caution.
This is the summary of the virtual launch event.
