Eradication of money laundering in West Africa

This is part of the European Union strategy for fighting the Cocaine Route. The objective of this FIIAPP-led project is to help control monetary crimes in West Africa (Ghana, Senegal, Cape Verde and Nigeria).

It will emphasise the development of a strategy to prevent money laundering in their non-bank financial structures and non-financial businesses. It will do so by conducting an analysis of the situation of these sectors; designing procedures to generate the information required by financial investigation and anti-money-laundering units to provide them with sufficient analytical capacity; training their staff; and promoting the integration of the beneficiary countries into international cooperation organisations and networks for fighting money laundering.
