Soros Foundation Moldova (SFM) is a non-governmental, non-profit, non-partisan organization that aims to promote open society values in Moldova. The goal of the Good Governance (GGD) department is to enhance transparency, accountability, and efficiency of public authorities.

In order to realize the Department's objectives, GGD cooperates with various actors, including business communities, active civil society organizations and public institutions including the Criminal Assets Recovery Agency (CARA). CARA is an autonomous specialized subdivision under the National Anticorruption Center. The institution was relatively recently established (2018). CARA’s main functions are to conduct parallel financial investigations, including corruption offences, drug trafficking, human trafficking, organized crime, tax evasion, smuggling, and money laundering. The role of this institution is very important for Moldova, however, due to the lack of country’s experience in this field, there is a need to strengthen CARA’s capacities and improve the legal framework to make it more efficient.
