Regional Forum for Capacity Development

It is CBCs ambition to create a space for exchange of ideas about current strategic issues affecting regional organizations, and explore

workable solutions, involving all relevant stakeholders.  The Regional Forum will also continue to focus on increased coordination of INTOSAI-

wide efforts aimed at addressing the current regional capacity development challenges.

See the INTOSAI Framework for Regional Professionalism here: INTOSAI Framework for Regional Professionsalism 2016.


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.

About RFCD
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.
