The SCAN projects database contains information on assistance projects conducted by ICAO, its Member States and aviation safety partners. For each project, information is included regarding the recipient State or group of States, the project provider and a summary of the project objective. The database also lists proposed projects in need of funding. This feature allows assistance providers and donors to search and analyse specific technical areas where assistance or support is needed.
The coordination achieved through SCAN will help to avoid costly and time-consuming duplication of efforts. It also provides greater transparency in defining and evaluating areas of highest priority in terms of technical assistance for the enhancement of aviation safety.
