Raising Public Awareness on AML/CFT/TOC in Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay

In the Tri Border Area (TBA) between Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay, the lack of an effective communication strategy to raise public awareness about Anti-Money Laundering (AML), Countering the Financing of Terrorism (CFT), and Transnational Organized Crime (TOC) affects the ability of governments to prevent these crimes.

The Program to Raise Public Awareness on AML/CFT/TOC in Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay will improve the capacity of criminal justice sectors and financial institutions to promote public awareness about the risks and realities of AML/CFT/TOC in the TBA and show how everyday activities may unwittingly contribute to related criminal acts.

By working closely with the communication departments of the criminal justice sectors, financial institutions, and Financial Intelligence Units (FIUs), the program will gather information from the different beneficiaries to provide timely and customized advice. Additionally, the program will develop awareness campaigns on AML/CFT/TOC and assist beneficiaries in implementing them, aiming to raise public awareness to help reduce unwitting involvement in these criminal acts.
