United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) Global Programme against Money-Laundering, Proceeds of Crime and the Financing of Terrorism
Through the Global Programme, UNODC encourages states to develop policies to counter money-laundering and the financing of terrorism, monitors and analyses related problems and responses, raises public awareness about money-laundering and the financing of terrorism, and acts as a coordinator of initiatives carried out jointly by the United Nations and other international organizations.

Model Legislations on Money-Laundering
The GPML has developed, in collaboration with UNODC's Legal Advisory Section and International Monetary Fund, model laws for both common law and civil law legal systems, to assist countries in setting up their anti-money-laundering/countering the financing of terrorism legislation in full compliance with international legal instruments. In this regard three model laws have been developed. These model laws, which serve as working tools for Member States, are in a continuous process of upgrading, encompassing new international standards. The laws are intended to be adjusted to the particularities of national legal systems and administrative cultures.
International Money-Laundering Information Network (IMoLIN)/Anti-Money-Laundering International Database (AMLID)
IMoLIN, a one-stop anti-money-laundering/countering the financing of terrorism research resource, was established in 1998 by the United Nations. This multi-faceted website serves the global anti-money-laundering community by providing information about national money-laundering and financing of terrorism laws and regulations and contacts for inter-country assistance. Inter alia, it identifies areas for improvement in domestic laws, countermeasures and international co-operation. The information on IMoLIN is freely available to all internet users, with the exception of AMLID, which is a secure database.
A how-to guide for the discovery and prevention of the illegal transfer of money. Written for the private sector - where most money laundering takes place - this book clearly explains business professionals how to deter, detect, and resolve financial fraud cases internally. It expertly provides an understanding of the mechanisms, tools to detect issues, and action lists to recover hidden funds. Arming auditors, investigators, and compliance personnel with the guidance that, up until now, has been restricted to criminal investigators, Money Laundering Prevention provides nuts-and-bolts information needed to fully understand the money laundering process.
