The General Secretariat of INTOSAI was represented by Silke Steiner, who presented INTOSAI’s approaches and tools to foster the achievement of the SDGs in general and of SDG 16 in particular. Furthermore, the Commissioner of the Environment and Sustainable Development of Canada, Julie Gelfand, presented SAIs’ and INTOSAI’s contribution to building effective institutions for implementing the SDGs at all levels.
