The GIFF Project

The GIFF Project

The GIFF Project aims to:

  • Raise awareness and understanding of illicit financial flows (IFFs) and criminal networks in gold supply chains;
  • Create a network of stakeholders interested in and working on artisanal and small-scale gold mining (ASGM) formalisation and IFFs in gold supply chains that will share knowledge and strategies; and
  • Provide stakeholders and decision makers (in government, civil society, and the private sector) with tools to identify, map, and address IFFs in their gold supply chains.

In 2016, we developed a handbook and toolkit to arm stakeholders with knowledge and tools to better identify and combat IFFs in the gold supply chain that impede formalisation of the sector. It assesses the various forms and functions of IFFs in ASGM, analyse existing legal frameworks related to these flows, and prescribe ways to address and prevent illegal activity in gold supply chains.
