Partnerships

The Global Programme against Money-Laundering, Proceeds of Crime and the Financing of Terrorism (GPML) co-operates - and frequently acts in partnership - with international and regional organizations involved in anti-money-laundering/countering the financing of terrorism (AML/CFT) activities, in order to complement ongoing activities and avoid duplication of work.  GPML works closely with and has conducted numerous joint activities with the World Bank, International Monetary Fund (IMF), Commonwealth Secretariat, Organization for Security and Co-Operation in Europe (OSCE), Asian Development Bank (ADB), Egmont Group of Financial Intelligence Units, UN Counter-Terrorism Executive Directorate (CTED), UN Counter-Terrorism Implementation Task Force (CTITF), INTERPOL, regional development banks, European Union, United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL), as well as the US Department of Justice (OPDAT), US Department of Treasury - Office of Technical Assistance (OTA), Inter-American  Drug Abuse Control Commission of the Organisation of American States (OAS/CICAD), FATF-Style Regional Bodies (FSRBs) and a number of individual country technical assistance providers. Collaboration avoids duplication of efforts and helps ensure that technical assistance is delivered in a structured manner.

GPML is active in its observer status with the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) and the following eight FSRBs: Asia/Pacific Group on Money-Laundering (APG), Caribbean Financial Action Task Force (CFATF), Council of Europe - MONEYVAL, Eastern and Southern Africa Anti-Money-Laundering Group (ESAAMLG), Eurasian Group (EAG), Middle East and North Africa Financial Action Task Force (MENAFATF), Inter-Governmental Action Group Against Money-Laundering & Terrorist Financing in West Africa (GIABA) and the Financial Action Task Force of South America (GAFISUD). These Bodies help set up systems to protect members' financial systems from the crimes of money-laundering and the financing of terrorism, promote mutual legal assistance and facilitate the adoption and effective implementation and  enforcement of  internationally  accepted standards against money-laundering and the financing of terrorism.

GPML's internal partners in UNODC are: the Treaty and Legal Assistance Branch; Terrorism Prevention Branch; Law Enforcement, Organized Crime and  Anti-Money Laundering Unit; Justice and Integrity Unit and Anti-Human Trafficking and Migrant Smuggling Unit.
