Countering International Drug Trafficking Organizations (DTO) and Illicit Financial Flows in Latin America Part 1
Drug Trafficking Organizations (DTO) in Latin America continue to derive tens of billions of dollars annually from the trafficking and abuse of illicit drugs. The adverse societal impact resulting from the illicit drug trade begins with the criminal acts of DTOs that produce, smuggle, transport, and distribute the drugs. This webinar is Part 1 of a 2-part series. Part 1 will be a focused discussion on understanding the various DTOs in Latin America, what drugs are primarily involved in the supply chain, and the corresponding transport and distribution routes between Latin America, the US, and Europe, including which drugs are being trafficked and what DTO are controlling the routes. It will also examine the impact that drug smuggling, transportation, and distribution have had on the UK and the US primarily. The webinar will conclude by introducing the corresponding international money movements and will map anticipated future trends and trajectories. This will set the foundation for Part 2, which addresses in detail the illicit money flows tied to DTOs.
