The Intergovernmental Action Group against Money Laundering (GIABA) was created in 2000 and is based in Dakar (Senegal). It is an ECOWAS specialized institution responsible for building the capacity of Member States to prevent and combat money laundering and terrorist financing in the region. It leads national risk assessments in member countries in the fight against money laundering and terrorist financing, as well as mutual evaluations, which are based on the FATF Recommendations. In addition to high-level advocacy to engage member States authorities, it provides support to various AML/CFT stakeholders such as the financial intelligence units. Again, it conducts awareness-raising activities with civil society.
The general objective of the intervention is to carry out an organizational diagnosis of GIABA and make recommendations that could:
- improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the Institution,
- strengthen internal controls,
- improve management of risks related to GIABA, and
- enhance its collaboration with its stakeholders.
