Greenacre: Supporting Civil Society in a Changing World

The environment for civil society is changing fast. Greenacre’s expertise can help civil society organisations cope with the challenges and maximise the opportunities that these changes bring. 

Civil Society and Global Terrorist Financing Rules

The global rules on terrorist financing set by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) are impacting civil society and NPOs globally. Many worrying trends can be traced to these rules, including limits on funding, more restrictive laws and regulations, and the removal of banking facilities. Greenacre has been at the forefront of efforts to ensure that the international rules are effective without restricting NGO activity. We have advised the Financial Action Task Force, and work closely with the Global NPO Coalition on FATF.

We believe that civil society and government have a common interest in combatting terrorist financing, and in ensuring the best possible outcome from FATF assessments. In more than a dozen countries across the globe, we have worked with civil society to ensure the best possible outcomes from the FATF process. Click here to learn more.
