Rapid Response Webinar: Afghanistan Sanctions and Humanitarian Risk Considerations
Unfolding developments in Afghanistan have resulted in a dramatically changing risk profile. Billions of Afghan central bank assets have already been frozen, licenses revoked, and further sanctions anticipated. Alongside this is a humanitarian disaster which will require the movement of humanitarian funds to support the civilian population, displaced persons, and refugees. This webinar forms part of a series of initiatives that will examine the sanctions, terrorist financing and risk context in relation to the Taliban and Afghanistan. We will set out current and anticipated sanctions developments and examine the humanitarian risk environment and related compliance aspects for permissible payments.
