Les Nations Unies recrutent 01 Consultant GPML
Duties and Responsibilities
Precious stones and precious metals are highly vulnerable to illicit trade and often underpin larger money laundering schemes, corruption, arms trafficking and conflict, undermining the licit economy. Their low weight, high value, high durability, stable pricing and ability to be easily moved or smuggled make them especially attractive to traffickers, launderers and criminal financiers, both as illicit trafficking commodities or as payment methods to finance terrorism and conflict or to be exchanged for arms or other illegal commodities including illicit drugs.
The UNODC Global Programme against Money-Laundering, Proceeds of Crime, and the Financing of Terrorism (GPML) is an experienced global provider of anti-money-laundering (AML) training and technical assistance and, since September 2001, also counter-financing of terrorism (CFT) training and technical assistance. Drawing on this experience and expertise, GPML is helping to develop the capacity of beneficiary member countries to counter money laundering and the financing of terrorism related to precious metals.
Through technical assistance and capacity building, UNODC aims to bolster the efforts of the project beneficiary countries to detect, investigate, disrupt and prosecute national and cross border illicit financial flows linked to illegal mining, trafficking and dealing in precious metals and stones.
UNODC’s efforts in this regard support efforts of the beneficiary countries to meet their obligations under UN Conventions, Financial Action Task Force (FATF) Recommendations and various UN Security Council Resolutions (UNSCR).
