The Coordinated Audit on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), an initiative led by the SAI of Brazil, in its capacity as Presidency of COMTEMA, with the participation of 11 member SAIs of the Latin American and Caribbean Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions (OLACEFS), has gained recognition at the United Nations as a good practice in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda.

In the Knowledge Platform for Sustainable Development, the United Nations has published the description that contains a summary of the objective, methodology, implementation, outcome, among other relevant aspects, of the Coordinated Audit on SDGs and their contribution to the work of the 2030 Agenda implementation.

This publication is part of an initiative of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations (UNDESA), which aims to share good practices, experiences and lessons learned by stakeholders interested in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs.

It is worth mentioning that the Coordinated Audit was the first work on the SDGs within the framework of the OLACEFS, and had the support of the German Cooperation through the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), aimed at strengthening external control in the environmental area and to sustainable development. Its objective was to evaluate the preparedness of national governments to implement the 2030 Agenda in general, and specifically evaluate goal 2.4, which deals with sustainability in food production. The results point to the need to perfect the strategies and mechanisms of coordination, supervision and transparency essential for the effective implementation of the SDGs. Likewise, the work leads to a regional diagnosis on the level of preparedness of Latin American governments regarding the subject.
