Supreme Audit Institution (SAI) Leadership and Stakeholder Meeting - Audit of Preparedness for Implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

A meeting on “Auditing preparedness for the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)” will take place in New York, from 20 to 21 July 2017. It is jointly organised by the United Nations Department of Social and Economic Affairs (UNDESA) and the INTOSAI Development Initiative (IDI), and it follows the ministerial segment of the High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF).

The meeting aims to foster substantive discussions and knowledge-sharing on critical issues related to preparedness for SDG implementation. Discussions will be organized around three objectives of the cooperative performance audits to be conducted in 2017-18 by selected SAIs with support from IDI and its partners: (i) Integration of the 2030 Agenda in national contexts; (ii) Securing means of implementation for the 2030 Agenda; (iii) Monitoring, follow-up, review and reporting on progress on the 2030 Agenda. Heads of SAIs, members of SAI leadership, experts from the SAI community, representatives from civil society, academia, UN organisations and other key stakeholders will have an opportunity to reflect on how to enhance the capacity of SAIs to conduct performance audits of preparedness for SDG implementation and SDG-related audits more generally, and to discuss about challenges and opportunities for SAIs’ contributions to SDG follow-up and review.
