(Part 1) Preventing and combating the financing of terrorism - Security Council, 8496th meeting
28 Mar 2019 -  Combating the financing of terrorism has for many years been a central element of the Security Council’s response to the threat of terrorism. Although there has been progress, particularly in the fight against Da ’esh, terrorist groups and individuals continue to adapt their methods and look for new sources of financing. 

During the open debate, Member States are encouraged to respond to the following questions:
How are they complying with the obligations contained in the various Security Council resolutions and the recommendations of competent United Nations bodies (especially the Counter-Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate) and the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), and what best practices have they developed?
In the light of the changing nature of the terrorist threat and the ways in which terrorists finance their activities, how can Member States, in partnership not only with the United Nations and FATF, but also with the private sector and civil society, adapt their response, and what areas should be prioritized?
The meeting will be opened by the French Minister for Foreign Affairs and Europe, Mr. Jean-Yves Le Drian.

The following prominent speakers will address the Council:
The Under-Secretary-General, United Nations Office of Counter-Terrorism (by videoconference)
Mr. Marshall Billingslea, President of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF)
Ms. Mercy Buku, expert in anti-money laundering and countering the financing of terrorism (by videoconference)
Under the agenda item “Threats to international peace and security caused by terrorist acts”.
