23rd UN/INTOSAI Symposium
Start Date: Mar 02, 2015
End Date: Mar 04, 2015
Venue: Vienna, Austria
Description:


UN Post-2015 Development Agenda:

The Role of SAIs and Means of Implementation for Sustainable Development

The 23rd UN/INTOSAI Symposium will be held in Vienna, Austria from 2 to 4 March 2015. The participants of the Symposium will deliberate on the topic "UN Post-2015 Development Agenda: the Role of Supreme Audit Institutions (SAIs) and Means of Implementation for Sustainable Development". 

This topic reflects a growing recognition of the necessity of involving SAIs in the national implementation of the Post-2015 Development Agenda. Given their independence, professionalism and reliability, SAIs are uniquely positioned to serve the public by promoting effective public governance, increasing the efficiency of public administration, improving development outcomes and promoting trust in government. In terms of national implementation, SAIs have a very important oversight role to play. 

The Symposium is scheduled to be opened by H.E. Mr. Heinz Fischer, Federal President of the Republic of Austria. From the United Nations, Under-Secretary-General for Economic and Social Affairs, Mr. Wu Hongbo, will make an opening statement on the current status of UN’s Post-2015 Development Agenda. Under-Secretary-General for Internal Oversight Services, Ms. Carman Lapointe, is due to make a statement on what lessons learned and advice SAIs can share from reviewing the implementation of the MDGs for the SDGs. The President of ECOSOC and the Permanent Representative of Austria, Mr. Martin Sajdik, will present on the UN Post-2015 Development Agenda:  Means of Implementation and the Role of SAIs.
