The main objective of the ICAO - European Commission Assistance Project is to contribute to the mitigation of CO2 emissions from international aviation by implementing capacity building activities that will support the development of low carbon air transport and environmental sustainability in the fourteen States belonging to the Least Developed Countries (LDCs and SIDS).

The project has three specific objectives:

  • Action Plans Development: Improved capacity of the National Civil Aviation authorities to develop an Action Plan on CO2 emissions reduction from international aviation in accordance with ICAO recommendations.
  • Aviation Environmental Systems (AES): Efficient CO2 emissions monitoring system for international aviation developed in each selected Member State.
  • Implementation of Mitigation Measures: Priority mitigation measures identified, evaluated and partly implemented.
