Measurement of illicit financial flows related to criminal activities for SDG indicator 16.4.1

Towards a global methodology for measuring illicit financial flows.

This section documents the effort of several Latin American countries to develop and apply a methodology to measure illicit financial flows with the technical support of the Center Excellence on Government, Crime, Victimization and Justice. This initiative stems from indicator 16.4.1 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which was defined to measure the "total value of inward and outward illicit financial flows (in current United States dollars)".
