Launch of Train-the-Trainer programmes in Romania and Tanzania

The beginning of this year marked a growing interest in ICAR’s Train-the-Trainer programme in financial investigation and asset recovery with launches in Romania and Tanzania. The TTT programme comprises 4 to 5 successive training workshops, which are delivered over a period of several months. Potential local trainers are selected and trained to deliver similar workshops to their peers in the future, thus ensuring the sustainability of the project.

As part of a recently launched project funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Co-operation (SDC), through the Swiss-Romanian Co-operation Programme, ICAR experts conducted two initial workshops in Bucharest earlier this year, covering the most recent financial investigation techniques, used at European and international level, as well as  asset recovery mechanisms. 

The other TTT programme launch early this year took place in in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. It was conducted for the Prevention and Combatting of Corruption Bureau (PCCB) and funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) through the Swiss Embassy. The ICAR team will deliver the second training workshop from 18 to 28 April 2017.
