The AFROSAI Working Group on Environmental Auditing (AFROSAI WGEA) is the African regional branch of a global working group of SAIs dedicated to environmental issues. African SAIs established a formal Working Group since 2002, after conducting several Audit activities relating to environmental issues within the banner of the AFROSAI English Sub-Group (AFROSAI-E) or under a collaborative approach headed by SAI South Africa.

Since its establishment, the AFROSAI WGEA encourages SAIs to conduct audits of environmental issues and implements programs and activities for capacity building of SAIs in this regard. For the purpose of supervising and guiding its efforts, AFROSAI WGEA usually develops a three-year work-plan approved by SAIs according to AFROSAI established practices.

The Auditor-General for the Federation (SAI Nigeria) is the current President of the AFROSAI WGEA and plays host to the Secretariat. SAI Nigeria took over the Presidency of the Working Group at the 9th Annual Assembly meeting in Cairo Egypt in October 2019.
