To promote knowledge sharing and integrate learning with work, the IDI will manage and cooperate with the INTOSAI Working Group on Environmental Auditing (WGEA) to run a transregional capacity building programme on performance audit of environmental issues in forestry. 12 participating SAIs from AFROSAI-E, ASOSAI and CAROSAI. The expected impact of the programme is improvement on forestry management in target countries as a result of SAI recommendations. The programme is linked to the work the WGEA has done to develop guidelines on the auditing of forestry management.
The participants will develop audit plans for forestry audits, and conduct and report a pilot forestry audit as per audit standards and guidance. The IDI and INTOSAI WGEA will facilitate an audit planning meeting and an audit review meeting, and will provide online and onsite audit support.
Participating SAIs: Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Nepal, Thailand, Botswana, Kenya, Lesotho, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Belize.
