In the context of the agreement signed by OLACEFS with AC-Colombia, and the support of GIZ, the Technical Commission for Good Governance Practices (CTPBG) presented a report on Opportunities for Enhancing Control and Accountability when Implementing Sustainable Development Goals – SDGs”, based on fieldwork conducted in Colombia, Guatemala and Honduras.

In the first chapter the report shows the results of the implementation of SDGs in Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as the results obtained by the countries where the fieldwork was undertaken – from a comparative perspective – and the challenges for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The second chapter discusses opportunities for monitoring and controlling SDGs from the perspective of good governance and emphasising the role of SAIs in the process, along with a proposal for OLACEFS to analyse and discuss, aimed at establishing monitoring and control of SDGs based on the principles of good governance and accountability of the Declaration of Asuncion, with a regional approach and national applicability.

This document drew on inputs such as an analysis of the achievements and challenges for the implementation of SDGs, international frameworks, resolutions, declarations and recommendations of the United Nations, INTOSAI and OLACEFS regarding governance and accountability, in addition to the outcomes of international events such as the VIII EUROSAI-OLACEFS held in Quito, Ecuador, and the XXV OLACEFS General Assembly held in Queretaro, Mexico, in June and November 2015. It also drew on interviews with institutional and social actors in Guatemala, Honduras, Colombia and Argentina as seat of the CTPBG presidency.

Finally, the report presents conclusions on some central aspects to enhance monitoring, monitoring and control of SDGs, in Latin America.
