Objective 3: Mitigation Measures


An integral element of an action plan is the identification of measures that will be implemented in order to achieve CO2 emissions reductions and/or improve fuel efficiency. Chapter 4 of the ICAO Doc 9988: Guidance on the Development of States' Action Plans on CO2 Emissions Reduction Activities provides more information on how to put together a basket of measures that is suited to a State’s circumstances.​ Obj 3.png

​​ICAO has identified a set of mitigation measures classified in the following categories:


a) aircraft-related technology development;
b) alternative fuels;
c) improved air traffic management and related  infrastructure use;

d) more efficient operations;

e) airport improvements;

f) economic/market-based measures; and
g) regulatory measures/other.
Following the submission of the Action Plans, ICAO will support the selected States in the implementation of their mitigation measures by providing guidance, preparing feasibility studies and
by facilitating access to financial resources through partnerships with international financial organizations that are interested in supporting this type of sustainable development initiative.
