Corruption, Money Laundering and
Terrorism Financing in the NGO Sector
INGO Anti- Fraud and Corruption Conference
26 – 27 January 2015
Purpose of the Conference
Corruption, money-laundering and terrorism do not respect the borders between our countries or our organisations. To live out our responsibilities to each other as civil society participants, and to our donors and our supporters, we need to work together to build mutual strength. Our beneficiaries deserve nothing less. This conference, then, aims to build capacity amongst NGOs, sharing best practice, emerging techniques, and building bridges to tackle the emerging risks of Corruption, Money laundering and Terrorism financing (CMT) faced by international NGOs and their partners. The conference will provide a forum for participants to discuss governance issues, share knowledge, and learn about available resources to equip themselves to manage the risks of CMT.
Participants will attend a series of interactive sessions that last about 1 hour to 1.5 hours. The conference centres on two key themes:
This conference is designed for INGO leaders, senior managers, or anyone charged with governance and key decision making within the organisations. Representatives from trusts, foundations, and donors with interests in tackling Corruption Money laundering and Terrorism financing are also welcome.
