The Global NPO Coalition on FATF presents:
“Nonprofits No Longer ‘Particularly Vulnerable’: What’s Next?”

Broadcast on September 12, 2016

Recording now available at 

The Financial Action Task Force (FATF) has revised its Recommendation 8 on nonprofits to no longer characterize them as “particularly vulnerable” to terrorist abuse and made important changes to the Interpretive Note to this Recommendation. NPOs are now wondering how their countries will react to these revisions and how they can ensure that national implementation is beneficial to nonprofits and in line with FATF’s new risk-based approach.

Discussion centered on how we got here and what you can do to help shape the road ahead.
