Launched on ICAO's 70th Anniversary on 7 December 2014

Supports UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

Reflects ICAO's mandate and operations

Raise awareness on the importance and benefits of improved global air connectivity and aviation system access for sustainable growth, development and socio-economic prosperity – travel, trade, tourism, employment sectors

For ALL States and ALL Strategic Objectives 

Focus on increased State implementation of ICAO policies, plans, and SARPs and enhanced ICAO support for States with prioritized needs

Prerequisite safe, secure, efficient, economically viable and environmentally sound air transport system


The No Country Left Behind (NCLB) Strategy highlights ICAO's efforts to assist States in implementing ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs). The primary goal of this work is to help ensure that SARP implementation is better harmonized globally so that all States have access to the significant socio-economic benefits of safe and reliable air transport.

The NCLB effort also promotes ICAO's efforts to resolve Significant Safety Concerns (SSCs) brought to light through ICAO's safety oversight audits as well as other safety, security and emissions-related objectives.​

In 2014, ICAO organized its first ever ICAO Council off-site strategy session. The purpose was to determine how ICAO can better communicate with and assist its Member States. One of the major points covered during these meetings was the fact that there are still significant discrepancies on how some States implement ICAO SARPs.



 The off-site determined that ICAO should focus its activities on States with higher accident rates or security threats and review what the Organization can do to encourage developed countries better to provide more comprehensive assistance to developing countries.



 It also resolved that ICAO itself should provide more direct assistance to developing countries by playing a more active coordination role between States and by helping to generate the political will needed for States to pool resources, participate in regional efforts, earmark voluntary funds and build capacity.



 The NCLB campaign was endorsed to help coordinate and publicize any Organization-wide activities consistent with these priorities.








Technical Cooperation (TC) is any project requested and funded by States and Organizations and implemented through TCB on a cost-recovery basis, where all the direct and indirect costs related to the project are recovered.

Technical Assistance (TA) is any support provided by ICAO to States, which is funded by the Regular Budget and/or Voluntary Funds and implemented through any Bureau/Office depending on the nature and duration of the project

Under ICAOs global initiative "No Country Left Behind" (NCLB), Regional Office EUR NAT developed a Capacity Building Programme to be implemented through Technical Assistance projects (EUR CBP-TA), according to the availability of funds and human resources.


Following FSMG meeting 2015/1 (31/01/2015), EUR/ NAT Office has initiated an analysis concerning the potential modus operandi of NCLB program within our regions.

Based on our experience from the ongoing projects and the safety status within our regions, a project management approach for the ongoing and new activities, has been identified as the optimum way to do more with less.

Our Technical Team has been trained and certified in Programme Management principles and has been assigned to multidisciplinary project teams to address, as per priority SSCs.

Since 2015 nine (9) Technical Assistance projects have been developed and /or are in various stages of implementation ( two, completed). 

During the same period, 3 SSCs have ben resolved.

Partnerships and resource mobilization from the Region are an important and integrated part of this Programme
