Collaborative Climate Change Audit Project: Process Chronicle and Lessons Learned
From 2015 to 2018, the provincial auditors general partnered with the Office of the Auditor General of Canada to undertake audit work on the progress their governments have made on climate change action. This was the first time that so many legislative audit offices in Canada coordinated their work in this way.
This report documents the process that was used to lead this unique project to its successful conclusion, as well as the key lessons that were learned during this process. It is hoped that this report will assist those planning collaborative audits in the future and inspire other auditors to work collaboratively in Canada and elsewhere to assess issues of mutual interest and importance to citizens.
