As a humanitarian and development organisation, and an advocate of human rights and humanitarian law, Asian Aid is committed to resolving conflict through peaceful, non-violent means, and is committed to upholding the Australian law and meeting its obligations under legislation. Asian Aid condemns all forms of violence against civilians, including terrorism and is committed to taking all relevant measures to prevent the financing or support of terrorism or terrorist organisations. Asian Aid also has a duty to ensure our funds and resources are used for their intended humanitarian and development purpose, along with duty of care to respect, protect and fulfil the rights of the affected communities we seek to ensure with the highest ethical standards in the implementation of our programs.

Asian Aid’s Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Policy aims to identify and minimise the risk of financial wrongdoing by Asian Aid stakeholders from within Australia and internationally. Asian Aid will monitor, review and report risks, while also promoting a culture of accountability, transparency, and due diligence to minimise the risk that funds or resources managed by Asian Aid are misused to support the actions of individuals and organisations associated with financial wrongdoing or terrorism.
