Project Title
Capacity building for CO2 mitigation from international aviation
Project Ref. Number
Africa: Burkina Faso, Kenya and ECCAS Member States (Angola, Burundi, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Republic of Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Sao Tome and Principe).
Caribbean: Dominican Republic and Trinidad and Tobago.
Overall objective
To contribute to the mitigation of CO2 emissions from international aviation in the selected States, by implementing capacity building activities that will support the development of low carbon air transport and environmental sustainability. 
Specific objectives
  • Improved capacity of the national civil aviation authorities to develop Action Plan on CO2 emissions reduction from international aviation in accordance with ICAO recommendations. 
  • Efficient CO2 emission monitoring system for international aviation developed in each selected Member State.
  • Priority mitigation measures identified and evaluated, and selected measures implemented.
Expected results
  1. National Action Plan teams built in at least 10 selected Member States.
  2. At least 2 members of staff in the aviation sector or related authority trained to develop Action Plans in each selected State.
  3. State specific ICAO Action Plans developed in at least 5 selected Member States and submitted to ICAO.
  4. Aviation Environmental Systems (AES) developed in the selected Member States.
  5. At least 2 members from national authorities/relevant stakeholder organizations per selected Member State trained to work with the AES and to have the capacity to report on aviation emissions for States inventories.
  6. Feasibility studies developed for priority emissions mitigation measures identified in the Action Plans in at least 5 States/Group of States.
  7. Measures to improve environmental benefits and reduce aviation fuel consumption selected and implemented in at least 5 selected Member States/Group of States.
Project duration
42 months
