Publicly Available Action Plans:
At a minimum the following information is contained in the plan:
This guidance has been developed with the goal of accommodating the various levels of experience among States in the development of similar national reports. It is expected that in addition to facilitating the preparation of an action plan, this guide will contribute to improving the reporting of CO2 emissions and the implementation of mitigation projects for international aviation.
The initial guidance material was refined based on the feedback received from States during the workshops (see below for more information on the workshops) and it has been endorsed by the CAEP Steering group meeting in September 2011.
In addition, ICAO held regional hands-on training workshops from May to July 2011 in its Regional Offices (see table and map below) workshops allowed States to obtain maximum benefit from the guidance material and provided opportunities for them to help refine their material.
The workshops provided participants with information to enable them to develop their State’s action plan as well as an hands-on training sessions on the ICAO interactive action plan website designated to allow States to submit their action plan electronically to ICAO for reporting and following up on their actions.
ICAO Side Event (7 June 2011, Bonn, Germany) “International Aviation and Climate Change States’ Action Plans – From Policy to Implementation”.
All participants to the Bonn Climate Change Conference were invited to ICAO’s Side Event which focused on its activities to assist member States in preparing and submitting their Action Plans to reduce CO2 emissions from international aviation.
Following an introductory presentation by ICAO Secretariat, the initiatives and perspectives on the Action Plans from representatives of member States in various ICAO regions were presented, please see below the presentations. The agreement on the preparation and submission of States’ Action Plans as part of Resolution adopted by 37th ICAO Assembly in October 2010 will shift the role of ICAO and it member States from Policy Setting to Implementation Mode.
ICAO Secretariat staff is available to assist States in the development of their action plans and to monitor progress. They can be contacted at email@example.com or directly through the Regional Focal Points.
Further assistance to support the implementation of specific project can be requested through ICAO Technical Cooperation bureau at TCB.firstname.lastname@example.org.
