Curb Illicit Financial Flows in Africa

Join THE Movement

Africa loses massive financial resources, about US$50 billion each year through illicit activities of multinational companies and rich individuals. These resources, if retained in the continent, could be invested in productive sectors of these economies to lift Africa’s growing population from under-development and poverty.

The multiplier effects of these losses are much larger. IFFs from Africa in real terms mean loss of jobs, income, decent education, health facilities and other basic infrastructure critical to structurally transform the economy of countries in Africa and the socio-economic conditions of Africans.

Africa’s retention of the capital that is generated on the continent and should legitimately be retained in Africa must be an important part of the resources to finance the Development Agenda

I’m signing because my community is affected by IFFs, by illegal miners and foreign hunters that bribe to get hunting licences destroying the very nature that should be bringing tourists into the country.
