The Danish Anti Money Laundering Programme delivers capacity support to sharpen the focus and capacity of the Ethiopian public institutions that are mandated to confront money laundering (AML), the financing of terrorism (CFT) and illicit financial flows (IFF), and to develop inter-agency as well as cross border collaboration. The Programme supports Ethiopia’s response to the recommendations of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), which is an international body mandated to improve the global response to money laundering and related challenges.
The Programme is financed by the Government of Denmark through the Danish Embassy in Addis Ababa. The support started in April 2019 and will last until June 2022. It is being implemented by the Danish consulting company, Tana Copenhagen, in conjunction with the Ethiopian AML/CFT/IFF authorities.
