The 41st Session of the ICAO Assembly in October 2022 adopted a collective long-term global aspirational goal (LTAG) for international aviation of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, in support of the Paris Agreement's temperature goal, while recognizing that each State's special circumstances and respective capabilities will inform the ability of each State to contribute to the LTAG within its own national timeframe

It was acknowledged that Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) offered the most significant potential for responding to aviation's decarbonisation. The Assembly welcomed the establishment of the ICAO Assistance, Capacity-building and Training for SAF (ACT-SAF) programme; encouraged States to further develop and update State Action Plans on CO2 emissions reductions from international aviation; and requested the convening of the Third Conference on Aviation Alternative Fuels (CAAF/3) in 2023.


To prepare for CAAF/3, which will take place later in 2023, ICAO started a series of activities to support States for the important decisions to be taken to facilitate the development, deployment and access to these fuels. In this regard, ICAO is organizing Environmental Regional Seminars with the objective of raising awareness on the outcomes of the 41st Assembly, focusing on the implementation of the LTAG, including recent developments on the ACT-SAF programme, financing cleaner energy, implementation challenges and policies, role of State Action Plans and other means for monitoring the LTAG progress, as well as exchanging States' initial views on the expectations for CAAF/3.


Due to the multidisciplinary nature of this topic, participation from States might involve different areas of expertise and also senior officials in the government.
