Page ContentA number of States need targeted assistance in order to prepare for the implementation of the CORSIA monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) system as from 1 January 2019. CORSIA Buddy Partnerships are a cornerstone of ICAO’s plan to support States to prepare for CORSIA implementation. Under the partnerships, technical experts provided by donor States will work together with the CORSIA focal points of recipient States to provide on-site training, and to closely follow-up on the preparation and implementation of the recipient States’ CORSIA MRV system. To ensure the consistency of assistance provided and relevant materials used through the CORSIA Buddy Partnerships, the involved technical experts will be coordinated and trained by ICAO, and are expected to tailor their support to the needs of the recipient States. Up-to-date information on the established CORSIA Buddy Partnerships will be provided in this page.
