​GIABA was created by the Authority of Heads of States and Governments of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) in 2000. 

The Financial Action Task Force (FATF), of which GIABA is a member, is the intergovernmental body responsible for setting standards and promoting the effective implementation of legal, regulatory and operational measures to combat money laundering, terrorist financing, and the financing of its proliferation, as well as other threats to the integrity of the international financial system. 

In collaboration with other players at the international level, the FATF also seeks to identify vulnerabilities at the national level with the aim of protecting the international financial system from misuse. In this regard, it published a number of recommendations​ that establish a comprehensive and consistent framework of measures that countries should implement in order to combat money laundering and terrorist financing, as well as the financing of the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.
