Beneficiary level: Country

Total budget (US Dollar): $599016
DAC Income classification: Lower Middle Income Countries

This proposal contributes to the SAV’s commitment to assist Vietnam to improve the protection of its natural resources and limit the damage from climate change. It is part of the SAV’s strategic plan to 2020. While broad donor support is being sought for many initiatives under the strategic plan, this proposal focuses exclusively on development of environmental audit as a type of performance audit.

The proposal includes 3 components: (1) Strategy and professional staff capacity development including developing a SAV environmental audit strategy; a specialized unit for environmental auditing; and putting 40 auditors in place who have completed training in environmental auditing and participated in pilot environmental audits. (2) Develop the process, handbooks and tools of environmental auditing including a handbook on environmental auditing in accordance with the ISSAIs; a training syllabus for environmental auditing; and the testing of these new materials  in 6 pilot audits. (3) International integration in environmental auditing, including one joint environmental audit with a peer SAI; attendance by two trained staff at one ASOSAI environmental auditing activity, followed by knowledge-sharing event or publication/article to transfer experience to SAV environmental audit colleagues.
The budget figure is converted from EUR 458,537.

The Canadian Comprehensive Auditing Foundation (CCAF) has received a grant from the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) which includes capacity development support to Vietnam covering a number of potential areas including environmental auditing.
There is ongoing contact between CCAF and SAI to conclude on a five year MoU with SAV and CCAF. The workplan with Vietnam will cover Capacity Building in the area of Performance Auditing and Communication with key stakeholders.
