INTOSAI Side Event at the UN High-Level Political Forum

On July 13 a side event “Moving towards full SDG implementation by partnering for greater impact of SDG audits” was organized by the INTOSAI Development Initiative, the INTOSAI General Secretariat, the Permanent Mission of Austria, the Permanent Mission of Indonesia, the INTOSAI Working Group on Environmental Audit and the Supreme Audit Institutions of Brazil and Indonesia in collaboration with UNDESA.

An opening remark was made by Ms. Isma Yatun, Chairperson of SAI Indonesia.

“I want to emphasize that it is necessary to have collaborative actions amongst all stakeholders. Particularly for SAIs, by conducting independent audits and comprehensive evaluations, SAI can promote accountability and transparency toward the achievement of SDGs.

Special focus was given to the goals on drinking water (SDG 6), renewable energy (SDG 7), transport and air pollution (SDG 11), sustainable public procurement (SDG 12.7), gender equality (SDG 5) and public health (SDG 3.d), amongst others.

The focus was made on the impact that SAIs’ SDG audits have already been able to achieve and how this impact can be further enhanced. INTOSAI’s external partners, such as the United Nations and the International Budget Partnership, presented their perspectives on successes already achieved and lessons learned.
