*commitment is not specific or/and not measurable

Commitment filtering:

Specific: ❌ no

While this commitment has a narrow policy focus, it is not sufficiently specific because it is merely a description of the continuation of existing work.

Measurable: ❌ no

This commitment is not measurable because specific forms of support had not been identified.

 

However, we note that Australia is a member of the Asset Recovery Interagency Network for Asia-Pacific (ARIN-AP) and the Camden Asset Recovery Inter-Agency Network (CARIN), and between 2018 and 2021 that Australia delivered technical assistance and training to partner countries in the Asia-Pacific region on strengthening criminal asset confiscation regimes and combating money laundering.[1] The delivery of technical assistance was not identified at the 18th IACC in 2018 nor was a budget for this support over the 2018-2021 period. Further, information received from Australian government representatives has confirmed that the provision of technical assistance, and funding for this, will end in mid-2022, with regional support provided on an ad-hoc basis in the future.
