In 2020, in partnership with the United Nation’s Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), FSVC began a new 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 will provide technical assistance to several West African countries, including Niger, Côte d’Ivoire and Burkina Faso, to strengthen private sector supervision and interagency cooperation in the area of AML/CFT. The FSVC/UNODC program will enhance the AML/CFT reporting chain of detection, investigation, disruption and prosecution of terrorism financing activity. It will also help increase regional cooperation and information sharing in AML/CFT.
