A High-level Meeting on a global Market-Based Measure (MBM) Scheme will be held at ICAO Headquarters in Montréal, Canada from 11 to 13 May 2016.
Prior to the High-level meeting, a briefing will be conducted on 10 May 2016 from 1500 to 1800 hours in Conference Room 3 to familiarize participants with the basic elements of the global MBM proposal, as contained in the draft Assembly Resolution text.
The need for the High-level Meeting stems from the Resolution A38-18 adopted by the 38th Session of the ICAO Assembly in 2013, which decided to develop a global MBM scheme for international aviation. The High-level Meeting will focus on deliberations on draft Assembly Resolution text on a global MBM scheme and make recommendations to the 208th Session of the Council, in preparation for the 39th Session of the ICAO Assembly, to be held from 27 September to 7 October 2016.
Participation to the High-level Meeting
All ICAO Contracting States, as well as a number of international organizations with direct involvement in aviation and/or environment, are being invited to participate in the High-level Meeting.
