INTOSAI – Working Group on Environmental Auditing

Audits of Disaster-Related Aid

The INTOSAI Working Group on Disaster-related Aid produced 5 ISSAIs (the 5500 series at www.issai.org) on auditing disaster-related aid. The ISSAIs present good practice drawn from audits performed by SAIs of different aspects of disaster-related aid.

Although the Working Group no longer exists, the ISSAIs are used by SAIs, and audits of disaster-related aid continue to be carried out. WGEA has created this space for SAIs to share experience on disaster-related aid auditing with other SAIs.
