Today the EU Global Facility wraps up its latest e-training on Statistics and Justice to Ecuador.
Led by French expert Aurélien Létocart, the e-training showcased France’s approach to justice statistics, including a discussion on the challenges that the country has faced in this regard.
France recently underwent the FATF evaluation, which yielded positive results in Immediate Outcomes 7 and 8 partly linked to statistics.
The expert presented the comprehensive framework employed in France for gathering justice statistics, with a specific focus on those to be submitted to the FATF. He emphasised the significance of national coordination in data collection and shed light on the common difficulties encountered by jurisdictions when dealing with this intricate realm of statistics.
With only one more specific module remaining—assets recovery, scheduled online from 24th to 26th July and then onsite from 6th to 8th September—the EUGlobalFacility is steadily supporting Ecuador in its efforts on anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing.
These specialised modules are not only instrumental in fostering knowledge sharing but also in equipping participating jurisdictions with the tools and expertise necessary to enhance their justice statistics systems. By addressing the complexities head-on, these countries pave the way for improved governance, transparency, and accountability.
