The project supported by GIZ aims to strengthen the operational environment for non-profit organizations (NPOs) in Kosovo. We aim to ensure that anti-money laundering (AML) and counter-terrorism financing (CTF) policies are effective in their objectives while also being conducive to the functioning and sustainability of civil society organizations (CSOs) in the country.

Key Focus Areas:

  1. Sectoral Risk Assessment: To engage actively in the NPO Sectoral Risk Assessment process, facilitating the development of civil society recommendations and understanding the compliance requirements set by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF).
  2. Access to Financial Services: To advocate for and improve CSOs’ access to financial services, addressing systemic issues such as banking restrictions that impact organizational efficiency and sustainability.
  3. Public Awareness & Capacity Building: To elevate public discourse around the impact of AML/CTF policies on civil society through infographics, op-eds, and public workshops. We aim to inform both the general public and policy-makers, including those new to governance, of the importance of balanced AML/CTF policies.
  4. Monitoring and Facilitating CSO Engagement: To keep track of policy developments related to AML/CTF and serve as a facilitator for CSO engagement, ensuring that the sector’s voice is heard and considered in the decision-making processes.
