The illicit financial flows (IFF) agenda has momentum, but weaknesses remain in its foundations, with the definition, measurement, and estimation of IFF, especially as these apply to country level studies.

Donors should focus on promoting country studies of IFF and broader anti-corruption policies in order to have the greatest impact on curbing IFF.
