A meeting on “Auditing preparedness for the Implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)” was held in New York July 20 – 21, 2017. The meeting was organised by the United Nations Department of Social and Economic Affairs (UNDESA) and the INTOSAI Development Initiative (IDI), and followed the ministerial segment of the High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF).
The meeting was aimed at fostering substantive discussions and knowledge-sharing on critical issues related to the preparedness for SDG implementation. The discussions were organised around three objectives of cooperative performance audits to be conducted in 2017-18 by selected SAIs with support from IDI and its partners:
- Integration of the 2030 Agenda in national contexts
- Securing means of implementation for the 2030 Agenda
- Monitoring, follow-up, review and reporting on progress on the 2030 Agenda
