On 1 June 2022, the "ICAO Assistance, Capacity-building and Training for Sustainable Aviation Fuels (ACT-SAF) programme" was officially launched as a side event officially associated to Stockholm+50 to showcase ICAO's achievements and further efforts for decarbonizing aviation. The details and recording are available on the event's website .
The ICAO ACT-SAF programme creates opportunities for States to develop their full potential in SAF development and deployment, in line with the ICAO's No Country Left Behind initiative, the 2050 ICAO Vision for SAF, and the three main pillars of sustainable development recognized by the United Nations.
As of November 2023, three Feasibility studies have been developed under the ACT-SAF programme, funded by the second phase of the ICAO-EU Project. These Studies follow the general
structure and information provided in the ACT-SAF “Template for Feasibility Studies on Sustainable Aviation Fuels”, including:
• information on the specific circumstances of the State, explaining the unique characteristics and
factors that could affect the development and deployment of SAF in the State;
• the identification of priority pathways for SAF production
• information on implementation support and financing needed for the implementation of the priority
pathways identified; and
• recommendation of an action plan aligned with the State’s governmental policies related to the SAF
development, with a focus on the priority pathways identified.
The ACT-SAF template and guidance for the development of feasibility studies are provided below:
The programme aims to provide tailored support for States in various stages of SAF development and deployment, facilitate partnerships and cooperation on SAF initiatives under ICAO coordination and serve as a platform to facilitate knowledge sharing and recognition of all SAF initiatives around the globe.
Supporting State / Organization* can participate by providing experts and/or resources
