At a global webinar of the CBC in June 2020 attendees from across all regions of INTOSAI confirmed the need for guidance on SAI engagement with civil society given the global recognition of civil society as a key actor and engagement partner in government, in development and in accountability ecosystems. The CBC is therefore pleased to announce the publication of Engagement with civil society – A Framework for SAIs which was produced as a result of this expressed need.

The purpose is to explain the rationale for and benefits of such engagements, and to provide a set of principles based on global good practices for SAIs to use to guide their engagements.  The framework is supported by a collection of good practices available in the knowledge centre of the INTOSAI Community Portal (see https://www.intosaicommunity.net/user/other_knowledgecenterdetails/2).
