One of the key strategies in INTOSAI’s Strategic plan tasks the CBC with supporting and promoting medium to long term peer-to-peer cooperation between SAIs in support of institutional development.
Peer-to-peer cooperation is the preferred mode of capacity development for a majority of SAIs. Long term peer-to-peer partnerships between SAIs build on common experiences, common missions and a common identity.
– Most importantly, they build on trust between colleagues.
The CBC workstream on Peer-to-Peer cooperation has conducted a webinar series on lessons learned on the project management cycle in medium to long-term peer-to-peer cooperation. Please see below under “Ongoing and Webinars” for more!
The Intosai CBC peer-to-peer workstream is pleased to invite you to the next online meeting,
to take place on Wednesday 19 April 2023 9:00-11:00 CET.
During the session we will have an external speaker who will share best practices and lessons learned from other peer-to-peer support programmes outside of the SAI community.
There will be sufficient time for questions.
In addition to the external speaker, we will have time during the meeting to discuss the peer-to-peer workstream plans for the year.
More information to follow in due course.
Best wishes from the CBC P2P co-leads,

About the P2P workstream
Medium and long term peer-to-peer cooperation was a theme discussed at the CBC’s annual meeting in Kuwait in 2018. Following up on those discussions, the CBC will encourage INTOSAI members and stakeholders to share their experiences of peer-to-peer cooperation through blogs and articles, strive to create opportunities to exchange experiences of peer-to-peer cooperation, share information about peer-to-peer cooperation, identify good practices and promote the use of peer-to-peer cooperation.
