Training Seminar on Auditing Forests

Prior to the 10th Annual EUROSAI WGEA Meeting in Cyprus 2012, the EUROSAI WGEA organised a one-day training seminar on Auditing Forests Monday 22 October 2012.


The Audit Board of the Republic of Indonesia kindly offered to conduct the seminar. The seminar was based on their previous INTOSAI WGEA publication Auditing Forests: A Guide for Supreme Audit Institutions from 2010, and their newly developed 5 days training course on the same subject matter.


The seminar addressed and discussed key issues related to auditing forests focusing on sustainable management of forests in the European region.
