This training is intended to support the capacity building of auditors from any SAI in auditing forest, specifically in the topic of protecting the conservation area, and also to provide a hands-on experience in utilizing geo-spatial technology used to collect audit evidences accurately such as remote sensing, Geographic Information System (GIS), and Global Positioning System (GPS). By joining this training, participants would also contribute in achieving one of the Sustainable Development Goals that focuses on forest conservation.


The training is targeting SAI auditors from the country members of INTOSAI WGEA, the midlevel professionals with at least 2 years of audit experience.


Participants are required to read the pre-course reading materials provided in our e—learning website (, so that participants could have similar understanding about forestry audit, and also obtain basic knowledge on performance audit and GIS/GPS technology. Participants will be invited to register on BPK e-learning portal 2 weeks before the training begins. Participants also have to submit a country paper which highlights forest conditions and forest management in their countries, their experience in forestry audit, and what they hope they can get from this training.


The training methods consist of on-class and off- class session. The on-class session will be held in the training center and will focus on the case study specifically designed by our facilitators to apply theories acquired from the pre-course reading materials and other materials provided in the class. The off-class session consists of outdoor activities  such as practice in using geo-spatial technologies  and field trip related to the case study. The field trip will take place in a real conservation forest (Pancar Conservation Forest, Bogor, West Java). The field trip will be held on the third day of the training.
