The meeting, which was facilitated by CGCC, was the first in a process that includes a series of regional workshops to discuss the risk of terrorist financing in the nonprofit sector and to share good practices and foster cooperation in responding to that risk. The meeting was convened under the auspices of the UN Counter-Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate and was hosted by the UK government. CGCC and the Charities Commission of England and Wales collaborated in organizing the meeting. Participants included representatives from international and regional organizations active in this field, national-level officials with a role in counterterrorism financing or charities regulation, and representatives from the nonprofit sector.
