For its second funding round, PMI IMPACT has announced a call for projects that address different forms of illegal trade and related crimes such as money laundering, corruption and organized crime.
PMI IMPACT is a global initiative to support public, private, and nongovernmental organizations to develop and implement projects against illegal trade and related crimes. The initiative was launched in 2016 by Philip Morris International (PMI), which has pledged USD 100 million to fund the first three rounds of grants.
Theme for Second Funding Round
Illegal trade takes different forms – ranging from the smuggling and counterfeiting of goods to human trafficking and the trade in drugs, arms, and wildlife. These forms are frequently interlinked and converge, as wrongdoers exploit the same large-scale trafficking routes and modes of operation.
