Aviation Security in Africa and the Middle East

 

  • Effective aviation security oversight capabilities as measured by the Universal Security Audit Programme (USAP) provide a proactive indicator of levels of security performance.

 

  • The AFI and MID Regions have aggregate-effective implementation scores below 70 per cent. In order to significantly improve aviation safety in the AFI and MID Regions, strengthen regulatory oversight and enhance safety performance, political will and support, at the highest level of Government, are fundamental. 

 

  • In light of the above, the political support and direction from Ministers responsible for aviation security matters are important preconditions for the success of this event and the various initiatives and the achievement of the GASeP goals and targets.

 

We invite you to visit our website regularly for future updates on this event.
