FAQ 5. How does ICAO support States in the implementation of a global MBM scheme?

​There are major areas where support to States might be needed, such as the establishment of systems for the monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) of emissions, or the development of national and regional registries.


With regard to the support for the implementation of a MRV system, the following provisions are included in the draft Assembly Resolution text:

 

  • According to paragraph 18 a), the Council shall also take necessary action to expand the provision of capacity building and assistance for the preparation and implementation on Member States’ action plans, in order to accommodate capacity building and assistance for implementation of the MRV system by Member States from 1 January 2018, including organization of seminars and training in all regions from 2017, and facilitation of financial support where needed.
  • According to paragraph 18 b), Member States are encouraged to build partnerships among themselves to cooperate on the implementation of the MRV system.


In this context, it is worth noting that as part of ICAO-EU partnership project to assist the development of State Action Plans in 14 African and Caribbean States, the Aviation Environmental System (AES) has been developed and operationalized in each of those States, which provides a tool to allow States to monitor CO2 emissions from international aviation at the State level. The AES could be adapted to support the preparation and implementation of the MRV system within the global MBM scheme.


With regard to the support for the implementation of registries, the following provisions are included in the draft Assembly Resolution text:

 

  • According to paragraph 18 c), the Council shall also take necessary action to expand the provision of capacity building and assistance for the preparation and implementation on Member States’ action plans, in order to accommodate capacity building and assistance for establishment of registries by States, including organization of seminars and training in all regions from 2017, and facilitation of financial support where needed.
  • According to paragraph 18 d), Member States are encouraged to build partnerships among themselves to cooperate on the establishment of their own registries or group registries established by groups of States, and possible pilot implementation.
