Curbing illicit financial flows for domestic resource mobilisation in the post-2015 era
Co-hosted by Australia and the OECD on 24 September at 11h00-13h00
United Nations Headquarters, North Lawn Building, CR-7, New York
The full programme and list of speakers will be made available shortly.
With the proposed target by the UN OWG to significantly reduce by 2030 illicit financial flows as background, this Side Event aims to identify concrete international actions needed in key areas for achieving this target, such as international tax evasion and avoidance, money laundering, bribery, and asset recovery.
A panel of high level representatives from governments, international organisations, civil society organisations and the private sector will explore and provide suggestions on:
Actions at the domestic and international levels to tackle illicit financial flows, as part of the means of implementation – and sources of finance – for the post-2015 development agenda;
Ways in which more coherent policies in all countries can generate an international environment that discourages illicit financial flows (e.g. transparent tax systems, financial transparency, clean business environments, and institutional capacity); and
Areas where international co-operation can support developing countries’ efforts in mobilising domestic resources for sustainable development, including through knowledge sharing and capacity building.
