OSCE and UNODC train Kyrgyz trainers on countering terrorist financing: 

    Strengthening the capacity of government officials from Kyrgyzstan to counter terrorist financing was the aim of a three-day train-the-trainers course organized by the OSCE's Transnational Threats Department and the UN Office on Drugs and Crime's Global Programme against Money Laundering, at the OSCE Secretariat in Vienna from 25 to 27 November 2017.

     The course focused on the financial disruption of terrorist networks and on listing terrorists and terrorist organizations for sanctions pursuant to UN Security Council Resolution 1267. It follows similar courses organized for Kyrgyz officials in June, July and September 2017.

    This activity was conducted to assist Kyrgyzstan in the implementation of relevant UN Security Council Resolutions and OSCE commitments. The training process focused on localized scenarios based on real-life cases. Together with OSCE and UNODC international experts, the six national trainers who participated in the course will continue delivering training courses for government officials upon their return to Kyrgyzstan.

    Part of a comprehensive capacity-building programme to support national efforts in Central Asia, the course helped the participants to understand how improving inter-agency co-operation can help to identify and disrupt terrorist financial networks. It highlighted specific instruments and techniques that could significantly improve their ability to counter terrorist financing.
