The first ever INTOSAI WGEA Award Winner will be announced


The INTOSAI WGEA Virtual Assembly 2021 hosts the first ever Award ceremony! The Inspiration in Environmental Auditing -  INTOSAI WGEA Award” is a new initiative through which INTOSAI WGEA wishes to promote a topical idea or innovation closely related to environmental auditing. In the future, the Award will be presented biennially at the INTOSAI WGEA Assembly meetings.


The first INTOSAI WGEA Award 2021 focuses on the best visualization in an environmental audit. An independent jury has gone through the submissions and will announce the winner of the Award before the closing ceremony of the 20th Assembly meeting.


We are excited to see what kind of visualizations have been nominated and which visualization will be awarded by the jury!
