International development cooperation

The aim of the international development co-operation is to help build stronger audit institutions in developing countries, to enable these organizations carry out their audits in accordance with internationally accepted standards. At present the Swedish NAO is primarily an institutional cooperation partner in several bilateral projects in Africa and in South-East Europe, but we are also involved in a regional project for English-speaking SAIs in Africa (AFROSAI-E) and a few more countries. The Riksdag has been granting the Swedish NAO funds to be used in the international development co-operation since 2004.
