ICAO TCB promotes the enhancement of aviation safety, through the implementation of technical assistance and cooperation projects in agreement with States. Through TCB projects, the civil aviation authorities of various ICAO Member States receive support in updating legislation, regulations and procedures, training for their professionals and infrastructure development. This support aims at establishing efficient and effective aviation safety oversight as well as developing air navigation and airport services.  In 2012, 62 national and 25 regional active projects contributed towards the improvement of aviation safety around the world.  These projects, mainly funded by the respective governments, had a total volume of 103.6 million USD.

 

TCB also implemented projects in Madagascar and South Sudan funded by the ICAO Safety Fund (SAFE) to review their civil aviation legislation and to provide recommendations to address safety shortcomings.
