  • Showcase examples of successful multi-stakeholder efforts at the national level to address bank de-risking drivers such as poor implementation of risk-based approaches to counter the financing of terrorism and ineffective sanctions regimes; and
  • Explore options for the G20 to build on initiatives supported by the FATF, the World Bank, and others to implement responses that are informed by these national experiences.
