The Swedish National Audit Office’s international development cooperation has contributed to strengthening supreme audit institutions and improving transparency and accountability, according to the report on results delivered to the Swedish parliament. Efforts are increasingly focused on supreme audit institutions in fragile states and young democracies.
Growth and democratic development rely on an efficient and effective public sector. Transparency and accountability are needed to contribute to the efficient use of public resources and to prevent corruption. Supreme audit institutions are instrumental in achieving these goals, and I am proud to say that our international development cooperation efforts make a difference for our partners, says Auditor General Helena Lindberg.
The Swedish National Audit Office has increasingly focused its efforts on cooperation with supreme audit institutions in fragile situations and young democracies. The projects which were initiated in Afghanistan and Liberia are in line with these ambitions.
Many of our partner organizations face complex political situations and challenging environments. This is especially clear in countries such as Afghanistan and Liberia. We are aware of the risks and challenges involved but we believe that it is in this context our resources can have the greatest impact, says Auditor General Helena Lindberg.
