Coordinated International Audit on Climate Change Key Implications for Governments and their Auditors November 2010

 

At the 11th meeting of INTOSAI’s Working Group on Environmental Auditing (WGEA) in Arusha, Tanzania, in June 2007 (WG11), a number of supreme audit institutions (SAIs) agreed to cooperate in designing and undertaking a coordinated audit of climate change programs.Fourteen SAIs, referred to as “the partners,” were part of the collaboration: Australia, Austria,Brazil, Canada, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Indonesia, Norway, Poland, Slovenia, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

This cooperation project was the first of its kind for the WGEA and, for several of the partners, was their first coordinated audit of this type. The partners represented a diverse group, with a range of experience in auditing climate change programs and a mix of audit mandates and practices. The joint summary report—Coordinated International Audit on Climate Change: Key Implications for Governments and their Auditors—is the culmination of the partners’ work together.
