International airports are the backbone of international civil aviation. In the context of air traffic growth, airports are key players in ensuring that the sector's grow is environmentally-friendly and ICAO has issued a series of Standards and Recommended Practices, as well as guidance documents to ensure that States, airport operators and other aviation stakeholders can rely on comprehensive and robust guidance to limit the environmental impacts of airport operations.


However, a number of challenges remain and require the availability of practical and ready-to-use information that is accessible to support the planning and implementation of airport infrastructure projects. The objective of the Eco-Airport e-collection is to provide such information, under the form of a series of short publications. The themes of the publications are chosen on the basis of immediate operation needs by States and focus on a specific aspect of environmental planning at airports. Together, they form an e-collection.


With this e-collection, we wish to equip States with practical information on key aspects of airport planning and design and to present concrete options they may choose to use. The "Green your Airport" publication would be a new tool for States to take informed decisions when financing a new airport infrastructure project or environmental management enhancement programmes.
