In Oslo, Norway, 15-16 May 2012, the EUROSAI WGEA organised a seminar on sustainable forest and fisheries management.

The first day of the seminar was devoted to keynote speeches from external experts, information on relevant INTOSAI WGEA guides and documents, as well as updated information on on-going activities in the working group with relevance to the two selected topics.
