CDI provides a broad range of services, including assistance in reviewing the structure and organization of national civil aviation institutions, updating the infrastructure and services of airports, protecting the environment, facilitating technology transfer and capacity building, promoting ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) and supporting remedial action resulting from the Universal Safety Oversight Audit Programme (USOAP) and the Universal Security Audit Programme (USAP) audits.
In focusing on the strengthening of civil aviation institutions, our goal is to enable States to better face the continuously changing aviation environment. View a summary of our main objectives.
As a United Nations specialized agency, ICAO strives to maintain the highest standards of ethics in the execution of its mandate. ICAO staff members are expected to conduct themselves at all times in a manner befitting their status as international civil servants. In this regard, ICAO has adopted the United Nations Standards of Conduct for the International Civil Service as its reference standard.
Staff members are expected to exercise the utmost discretion in regard to all matters of official business. They may not communicate to any person any information known to them by reason of their official position which has not been made public, except in the course of their duties or by authorization of the Secretary General. Nor may they at any time use such information to private advantage. These obligations do not cease upon separation from service.
