The Center of Excellence gives support to measure illicit financial flows in Ecuador

From November 11th to 14th, 2019, the Center of Excellence for Statistical Information on Government, Crime, Victimization and Justice visited Quito, Ecuador, to start the pilot to measure the total value of inward and outward illicit financial flows from the country, in line with indicator 16.4.1 of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Together with the relevant national institutions, the contexts, available data, measurement methodologies and money-laundering indicators related to drugs, human trafficking, smuggling of migrants and illegal mining were reviewed.

The pilot activities will take place in Ecuador until 2020.
