MPAC IS PARTICIPATING AT THE INTER-GOVERNMENTAL ACTION GROUP AGAINST MONEY LAUNDERING AND TERRORIST FINANCING IN WEST AFRICA (GIABA) WORKSHOP.
GIABA is an institution of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) responsible for facilitating the adoption and implementation of Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Counter-Financing of Terrorism (CFT) in West Africa. It is also a FATF-Styled Regional Body (FSRB) working with its member States to ensure compliance with international AML/CFT standards.
The objectives of the workshop are to:
(i) actively sensitise members of the civil society to their roles in combating the twin scourges of money laundering and terrorist financing, particularly that of taking the AML/CFT message to the grassroots;
(ii) assist participants to advocate policy development on AML/CFT issues; and
(iii) strengthen the network of CSOs to mount a holistic and aggressive campaign on AML/CFT.
The 3-day workshop will end on Wednesday, 26th of August, 2015.
While MPAC is pleased to be selected for this service, we wish our delegate, Abdrahman Adogie (Head of Events, MPAC) and all the other delegates a successful and rewarding experience.
