ICAO and the United Arab Emirates signed a new Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) today which set out provisions for the Middle Easter State to provide new support to the ICAO No Country Left Behind (NCLB) capacity-building initiative through the UN Agency’s Aviation Safety Implementation Assistance Partnership (ASIAP) programme and core Strategic Objectives.

 

The new agreement is consistent with ICAO Assembly Resolution A39-23, which called on ICAO Member States and relevant partners to provide financial and technical resources to help States in need build capacity and enhance their ICAO compliance and oversight responsibilities.

 

Needful States to benefit from the new assistance will be identified through the ASIAP using metrics established by ICAO’s Universal Safety Oversight Audit Programme (USOAP CMA),  and the assistance efforts themselves will likely be comprised of on-site and off-site customized training and other activities, as mutually agreed in advance between ICAO and the UAE’s General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA).
