​ A Global Strategy for Addressing Wildlife Strike Hazard to Aviation


This joint International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) / Airports Council International (ACI) Wildlife Strike Hazard Reduction Symposium aims at increasing the international awareness of the wildlife strike threat to aircraft operational safety; building an international community to exchange ideas, experiences and cooperative efforts to better manage wildlife strike hazard on and in the vicinity of airports; and advancing new technologies and formulating effective strategies in preventing and mitigating the risk of wildlife strikes to aircraft. The event will also be an opportunity for networking, collaboration and coordination between States, industry and other stakeholders.


An industry exhibit will showcase the breadth of existing and emerging technologies, and research and development activities of this industry sector. ​


The symposium will be held in English only.​
