EUROSAI Extends Mandate for WGAFADC
The Xth European Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions (EUROSAI) Congress resolution extended the mandate of the Working Group on Audit of Funds Allocated to Disasters and Catastrophes, which is chaired by the Accounting Chamber of Ukraine. The Congress also approved the Working Group’s Activity Report for 2015-2017, as well as the Strategic Plan for 2017-2020.
One of the working group’s strategic objectives for the next period is implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, paying particular attention to Goal 11 “Make cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.”
The Istanbul Declaration, approved by the Congress, endorsed the need for EUROSAI to uncover best practices to respond to the growing number of emergencies, especially mass migrations and cyber-attacks. The declaration also greatly expands the group’s field of activity and creates new future benchmarks.
