A recording and the presentations from INTOSAI WGEA COP26 Webinar: The role of auditors in the global climate challenge held 8 November 2021 are now available.
The webinar presented a versatile range of SAI audit examples from Brazil, Canada, UK, USA, the European Court of Auditors, and the Pacific region as well as the WGEA’s actions, structured around the COP26 themes of mitigation, adaptation, finance, and collaboration. Presentations were followed by a commentary from Director Youssef Nassef of the UNFCCC and a panel discussion.
In the context of the COP26, the INTOSAI WGEA has also prepared in collaboration with the U.S. Government Accountability Office a bulletin summarizing the work of the WGEA and SAIs on climate. We hope this bulletin helps SAIs to discuss the growing importance of risks related to the climate and provides support for their external communication to leverage the work of SAIs and WGEA with external stakeholders.
Please find the webinar recording on the INTOSAI WGEA Youtube channel.
The webinar presentation slides are available here.
