Regional Organizations promote INTOSAI’s goals regionally, thus providing members with opportunities of professional and technical cooperation on a regional basis. The INTOSAI Governing Board has recognized the following seven Regional
Organizations: INTOSAI Regions.
In 2013 in Beijing, the Governing Board of INTOSAI tasked the Capacity Building Committee with putting specific emphasis “on INTOSAI regions and interregional cooperations” (the INTOSAI regions are automatically members of the CBC Steering Committee). For the CBC it is only logical that INTOSAI’s emphasis on well-functioning and professional INTOSAI regional organisations should form part of the professionalization agenda of INTOSAI.
The CBC therefore established a regional community of practice – the Regional Forum for Capacity Development – to share and address issues relating to regional capacity development and regional professionalism at a cross-regional and strategic level to promote regional strength and professionalism.
Regions Coordination Platform
The INTOSAI-Regions Coordination Platform was created in 2017, with the purpose to provide a single platform to INTOSAI organs and regional organizations for tactical and operational coordination and alignment of common efforts, exploring synergies, tracking and evaluation of progress, and knowledge sharing.
