The project Support to Anti-Corruption Efforts in Kosovo (SAEK III) is expected to have a positive impact on reducing the level of corruption in Kosovo by strengthening monitoring and oversight mechanisms of institutions to perform in an efficient, transparent, accountable, and gender sensitive manner. 

Kosovo’s Financial Intelligence Unit would benefit from increased capacities to conduct strategic analysis for money laundering as a tool for increasing stolen assets recovery. UNDP will support the Financial Intelligence Unit in establishing a Strategic Analysis Department tasked with analysing global and local trends in financial crime involving PEPs, money laundering, so as to ensure that Kosovo’s investigative authorities are prepared to deal with new challenges as they emerge. Setting up the standard operating procedures, coaching and training will be undertaken which would ensure that the department is a stand-alone and fully functioning integral part of the FIU’s work, capable of exporting its knowledge to Kosovo’s law enforcement bodies.
