Global initiatives supporting SAI-Citizen engagement
The purpose of the majority of global initiatives is to convene leaders and seek to implement innovative solutions to identified challenges. In the context of SAIs, global initiatives can serve as mechanisms to help governments systematically integrate citizen engagement in the oversight of public finances. Global initiatives provide entry points for citizen engagement and help to create an enabling environment for those activities by both promoting dialogue that addresses that topic and ensuring coordination and knowledge exchange between internal and external stakeholders that are committed to transparency and accountability. The potential of global initiatives is to leverage international norms to advance national agendas regarding citizen engagement throughout the audit cycle.
