The Ministry of Financial Services and Good Governance will organise a National Capacity-Building Workshop on Countering the Financing of Terrorism through effective National and Regional Actions, from 29 to 31 October 2018 with the assistance of the United Nations Counter-Terrorism Centre.

The objective of the Workshop is to train the local stakeholders on the requirements of United Nations Security Council Resolutions relating to the prevention and suppression of terrorism and terrorist financing.

Moreover, participants will have an enhanced understanding of international sanctions objectives, strategic advantages, best practices on implementation and terrorist financing typologies that could be organised through better coordination and financial investigations.

Resource Persons from the UN Office of Counter Terrorism will facilitate the workshop.

The United Nations Counter-Terrorism Centre was established in September 2011, to promote international counter-terrorism cooperation and support Member States in the implementation of the Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy.
