National Aviation Planning Framework Guidance
Building on the development of Guidance to assist Member States with establishment of their National Aviation Planning Frameworks, ICAO and the Government of the People's Republic of China have started collaboration on a project of the development and delivery of the Civil Aviation Master Planning (CAMP) Course, for the development of which these guidance materials will serve as a basis. As a background, National Aviation Planning Frameworks Guidance Material contains guidelines on the structure and major components of national CAMPs and addresses the need to connect CAMPs with ICAO global programmes and national governments’ overarching development plans. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the training on CAMP will also integrate COVID-19 pandemic response and recovery aspects as well as preparedness plans to effectively support States to better respond and recover from such crises. Under this collaboration, the Government of China, through its South-South Cooperation Assistance Fund, will make a voluntary contribution of USD 1 620 000 to ICAO for development and delivery of the CAMP course. The delivery of the project is planned for 2021.
SuM4All Global Roadmap for Action (GRA)
SPCP represented ICAO on the Sustainable Mobility for All (SuM4All) Consortium and coordinated ICAO’s active engagement in various activities of the five Working Groups of Sum4All, ensuring aviation would be sufficiently reflected in outputs of the Working Groups. Within the context of the COVID-19 pandemic recovery, the Consortium of Sum4All agreed to revisit the Global Roadmap of Action toward Sustainable Mobility (GRA) in order to introduce aspects on resilience to risks, such as global pandemic and climate risks. Sum4All also launched the pilot implementation of the GRA, in South Africa, as the guiding policy framework for better investment and policy decisions based on data and evidence. The GRA implementation will be expanding to Ethiopia as well, following the request made by the Ethiopia Ministry of Transport for the partnership to achieve sustainable transport and mobility.
