From 2020 to 2022, in partnership with the United Nation’s Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), FSVC implemented a program funded by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Counterterrorism on anti-money laundering and combating the financing of terrorism (AML/CFT) in West Africa.

FSVC and UNODC provided technical assistance to several West African countries, including Niger and Burkina Faso, to strengthen private sector supervision and interagency cooperation in the area of AML/CFT. The FSVC/UNODC program focused on enhancing the AML/CFT reporting chain of detection, investigation, disruption and prosecution of terrorism financing activity. It also focused on regional cooperation and information sharing in AML/CFT.
