This e-training is the second activity implemented in the Seychelles, following an introductory e-training carried out earlier this month. This training will focus on the implementation of the FATF Recommendation 8, the full engagement required by countries and thus the awareness of the issue by local NPOs.
This constitutes the first in a series of capacity building activities for the CSOs in the Seychelles. This series will carry an introductory objective, including to prepare the country’s NPO community for the follow up measures to be taken within the framework of the EU Global Facility’s assistance to the Seychelles under its CSO component.
“I am very happy to see our technical assistance starting only three weeks after our first mission there,” said EU Global Facility Team Leader David Hotte in his welcoming remarks, adding “these are only the first activities and we are sure I will mark the start of a great cooperation, with many more activities to come.”
This session comes following the productive scoping mission our team conducted last month, where a workplan of the EU GF’s engagement with the Seychelles was elaborated in co-ordination with the authorities of Seychelles. The workplan covers various AML/CFT topics on which the GFT shall focus in its engagement with the partners state. The GFT shall also remain in touch with the other TA providers to ensure the synergies in joint efforts.
