Informal technical briefing for United Nations delegates in Vienna


On 25 February 2021, the FACTI Panel will release its report which will provide 14 recommendations for promoting financial integrity for sustainable development. These recommendations, which the FACTI Panel believes are technically feasible and politically viable, will revitalize the global architecture to combat illicit financial flows with a view to cementing ‘financial integrity for sustainable development’. A launch event will include interventions from heads of state and government as well as a multi-stakeholder moderated discussion segment among ministers, executives and heads of civil society organisations.


This informal technical briefing, organized jointly by the UN Office on Drugs and Crime and the FACTI Panel Secretariat, will give representatives of Permanent Missions in Vienna the opportunity to engage with the FACTI panel and each other in a dialogue on the recommendations contained in the report.
