Global Priorities — All Strategic Objectives — Sustainable Development and Global Partnerships — Sustainability



With a view to promoting advocacy for aviation within Member States, the UN common system, international and regional organizations, financial institutions and the private sector as well as to broaden the outreach in States to obtain the engagement of high-level authorities beyond the transport sector, ICAO invited strategic partners to join the Aviation Partnerships for Sustainable Development (APSD), which was launched during the Second ICAO World Aviation Forum.


Under APSD, specific initiatives will be introduced and progressed by aviation partners aimed at sensitizing high-level government officials, raising awareness about aviation’s contribution to sustainable development, and promoting the benefits of mobilizing resources for and investing in air transport. The first initiative is a series of high-level events and side events for Least Developed Countries (LDCs), Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and Landlocked Developing Countries (LLDC) that will be organized back to back at major conferences of these groups of States starting in 2017.


Following ICAO’s invitation to join the APSD, the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA), the UN Office of the High Representative for the LDCs, LLDCs and SIDS (OHRLLS), the World Bank Group (WBG), and the Air Transport Action Group (ATAG) agreed to support this initiative.
