Report Launch: Mitigating Financial Access Challenges

Nonprofit organizations operating in regions subject to sanctions, or in areas where designated terrorist organizations operate, experience significant difficulties transferring funds to support humanitarian programs. Financial access challenges, including those related to “de-risking”, occur when financial institutions choose to forego transactions for nonprofit customers due to concerns over compliance with anti-money laundering (AML), combating the financing of terrorism (CFT), and sanctions regulations, or impose severe delays on these transactions and in turn on humanitarian programming.

To reconcile the recognition and interests of key stakeholders including donors, financial institutions and nonprofit organizations, the CSIS Humanitarian Agenda convened the Multi-stakeholder Working Group (MSWG) on Financial Access to build a shared understanding of the various issues and explore practical solutions to promote financial access for nonprofit organizations.

Please join the CSIS Humanitarian Agenda on Monday, November 14 at 9:30 a.m. EST for the launch of a report: Mitigating Financial Access Challenges. The panel will feature Sue Eckert, former Senior Fellow of the CSIS Humanitarian Agenda, and representatives of the nonprofit, financial, and governmental sectors. The discussion will include a brief on the report, and a moderated discussion on challenges and opportunities to enhance humanitarian financial access through improved stakeholder understanding, collaboration, and risk-sharing.

This event will be moderated by Jacob Kurtzer, former Director and Senior Fellow of the CSIS Humanitarian Agenda.

Additional speakers to be announced.

This event is made possible through the generous support of USAID.

Empty Bins in a Wartime Environment [Video]

The U.S. defense industrial base is not adequately prepared for the international security environment that now exists. In a major regional conflict—such as a war with China in the Taiwan Strait—the U.S. use of munitions would likely exceed the current stockpiles of the U.S. Department of Defense. According to the results of a series of CSIS war games, the United States would likely run out of some munitions—such as long-range, precision-guided munitions—in less than one week in a Taiwan Strait conflict. The war in Ukraine has also exposed serious deficiencies in the U.S. defense industrial base and serves as a stark reminder that a protracted conflict is likely to be an industrial war that requires a defense industry able to manufacture enough munitions, weapons systems, and matériel to replace depleted stockpiles. As timelines for a possible conflict in Asia shrink, the goal should be to support the production capacity required to enable the United States and its allies and partners to deter and, if deterrence fails, fight and win at least one major theater war—if not two. “Just in time” and lean manufacturing operations must be balanced with carrying added capacity. The U.S. Department of Defense, in coordination with Congress, should develop a plan now that involves taking steps to streamline and improve production, acquisitions, replenishment, Foreign Military Sales, ITAR, and other policies and procedures. A revitalization of the defense industrial base will not happen overnight for the United States or its allies and partners. It is time to prepare for the era of competition that now exists.To read the full report, visit https://www.csis.org/analysis/empty-bins-wartime-environment-challenge-us-defense-industrial-base---------------------------------------------A nonpartisan institution, CSIS is the top national security think tank in the world.

The First Battle of the Next War: A US-China Conflict over Taiwan [Video]

War with China was once unimaginable but is now a frequent topic of analysis and discussion. CSIS ran 24 iterations of a wargame to see how such a conflict might play out. The bottom line: although in most scenarios Taiwan endured as an autonomous and democratic entity, the costs were staggering for all involved.Read the full report at https://www.csis.org/analysis/first-battle-next-war-wargaming-chinese-invasion-taiwan.---------------------------------------------A nonpartisan institution, CSIS is the top national security think tank in the world.
