During April 27–30, 2015, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), in collaboration with the International Institute of Higher Studies in Criminal Sciences (ISISC), will organize a workshop on “Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing National Risk Assessment” in Siracusa, Italy. The workshop will provide training to twenty officials from the Financial Intelligence Units, Law Enforcement Agencies, and supervisors involved in countering money laundering and terrorist financing (ML/TF) in the following countries: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Czech Republic, Kosovo, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovakia, and Ukraine.

The workshop will discuss the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) requirements on assessing risks and applying a risk-based approach, and will include a presentation on the IMF methodology for conducting a National Risk Assessment, as well as participating countries’ experience in identifying threats, vulnerabilities, and mitigating actions. The expected outcome is to enhance the capacity of participating authorities in identifying and prioritizing major ML/TF risk areas in their respective countries.
