Regional Forum for Capacity Development

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.

Annually at CBC meetings or webinars, the CBC creates 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.
