ARABOSAI WGEA (SDGs Auditing Committee)

ARABOSAI WGEA (SDGs Auditing Committee)

The Working Group on Environmental Auditing of the Arab Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions (ARABOSAI WGEA) initiated its work in May 2009. Its name was subsequently changed to the Environmental Auditing Committee.

In 2019, due to strategic priorities, the Executive Board of ARABOSAI decided at its 58th meeting to extend the scope of the Environmental Auditing Committee to audit sustainable development issues. Thus, the new title of the ARABOSAI WGEA is SDGs Auditing Committee.

Currently, the Committee which is chaired by SAI Morocco, includes SAIs from nine countries: Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Libya, Morocco, Oman, Palestine, and Saudi Arabia.

The committee developed its plan for the period 2023-2025 during the 8th committee meeting held in Rabat on 28-30 November 2022. The current work plan includes the following activities on:

  • Specific environmental audit
    • Developing the ARABOSAI's database for Environmental Audit reports
    • Promoting the participation of the Arab SAIs in the INTOSAI WGEA activities
    • Supporting the collaborative audit on climate change adaptation coordinated by IDI
  • Other general SDGs audit:
    • Coordinating a report phase of the ongoing collaborative audit on SDG 4.1
    • Conducting a Second Survey on SDGs audit in the ARABOSAI region
    • Training of trainers on IDIs SDG Audit Model (ISAM)
    • Developing and translating guides
    • Publishing articles, research papers, and SAIs success stories.
