The South Neighborhood Anti-Corruption Project (SNAC 2) held back-to-back trainings on terrorism financing risks in the non-profit sector in Jordan. The trainings were addressed and tailored to a number of different target audiences:

  1.  law enforcement authorities and the financial intelligence unit were trained on investigative and analytical techniques to analyses and identify terrorism financing-related activity in the non-profit sector;
  2. financial institutions were provided with red flags to identify suspicious transactions through non-profit organizations (NPOs);
  3. NPO sector supervisors were trained on inspections techniques to identify terrorism financing risks; and
  4. non-profit organizations and their associations in Jordan attended an awareness raising session on identifying, preventing and blocking terrorism financing through their activities.

These sessions also facilitated the preparation of Jordan for the upcoming mutual evaluation by the Middle East and North Africa Financial Action Task Force (MENAFATF), which will be focused among other issues on terrorism financing risks in the NPO sector.
