Our engagement in Malawi 🇲🇼
The EU Global Facility is in Lilongwe this week, as part of its fruitful partnership with the new partner state of Malawi. This mission follows online training delivered following the request for technical assistance made by the authorities of Malawi to the European Commission in the spring of 2023.
Today, the team starts with a hybrid workshop on the FATF Rec 8, aimed at enhancing the capacities of Malawian authorities and Non-Profit Organisations (NPOs) in understanding and implementing the Financial Action Task Force (FATF)‘s said Recommendation 8. More specifically, it seeks to provide insightful contributions to the Working Group responsible for the development of Malawi’s NPO Sectoral Risk Assessment in order to improve their capacity to assess and mitigate risks within the Non-Profit sector.
Over the next few days, the team, led by David Hotte and Key Expert on Justice/CSO Mamuka Jgenti will carry out a scoping exercise with various state institutions of Malawi. These discussions, coordinated by the EU Delegation in Lilongwe, aim to ensure alignment with the priorities and needs formulated by Malawi on AML/CFT.
🇪🇺 🇲🇼 We wish to extend our special thanks to the EU Delegation to Malawi for their support in organising this successful event and giving the EU Global Facility the best conditions to provide technical assistance to our partners.
