ISAR assists developing countries and countries with economies in transition to implement best practices in corporate transparency and accounting in order to facilitate investment flows and economic development. ISAR achieves this through an integrated process of research, intergovernmental consensus-building, information dissemination and technical cooperation.
The annual sessions of ISAR address a variety of issues in corporate accounting and reporting, with a view to improving the global comparability and reliability of corporate reports.
The twenty-seventh session of ISAR is expected to address a capacity-building framework for high-quality corporate reporting. In addition, it will deal with topics such as corporate governance disclosure and environmental accounting and reporting (with a specific focus on climate change-related disclosures).
The twenty-seventh session is also expected to provide information concerning recent developments in international accounting, auditing, corporate governance disclosure, corporate responsibility reporting and other related issues, by allocating time at the session for updates by other international and regional organizations engaged in these matters.
In addition, the conference on "Corporate governance in the wake of the financial crisis" will be held on 12 October 2010.
This will feature a keynote address by Professor Mervyn King, Chair of the King Code on Corporate Governance (South Africa), as well as expert commentary from international organizations working in this area, including OECD, the World Bank, IOSCO, IFAC, ICGN, the Global Corporate Governance Forum, and others.
