Illicit Financial Flows: Towards a more integrated approach for curbing Illicit Flows from Zimbabwe

"This study is an attempt to estimate the levels of Illicit Financial Flows (IFFs) from Zimbabwe’s Mining, Fisheries, Timber and Wildlife sectors, over the period 2009 to 2013. It seeks to assess the possible drivers of IFFs and the existing legal and institutional frameworks designed to curb IFFs. The study also provides rich background material on the legal and institutional frameworks governing the development and exploitation of natural resources in Zimbabwe. A comparison of national strategies within the Southern Africa region to combat illegal exploitation and trade of the resources from the aforementioned sectors is discussed, with a view to draw important lessons for Zimbabwe."
