A regional workshop on Airport and Route Facility Management was convened by ICAO at its Dakar regional office from 5 to 7 February 2003. The workshop was held for States in Western and Central Africa. Also invited to the workshop were some selected international organizations. The invitations were open to national civil aviation administrations which included representatives of autonomous entities (public as well as private) for airports and air navigation services in the States concerned.


These workshops are intended to be informal meetings providing a forum for participants from States to receive advice on ICAO's policy on cost recovery and freely exchange views and information on economic aspects of the operation and management of airports and route facilities (and air navigation services in general). Those participating should come prepared to discuss any problems relating to such aspects as well as possible solutions.


The agenda for the workshop was as follows:


  1. ICAO policy on airport and air navigation services charges
  2. Organizational structures of airports, including comercialization
  3. Airport financial management and airport charges on air traffic
  4. Development and management of non-aeronautical activities
  5. Infrastructure financing
  6. Organizational structures of air navigation services, including international cooperation
  7. Financial management of air navigation services and air navigation services charges


Special attention was given to the implementation of recommendations of the Conference on the Economics of Airports and Air Navigation Services (ANSConf 2000), held in Montreal 19 to 28 June 2000, including privatization and cooperative ventures as well as general cost recovery issues. Details about the workshop may be found in the Invitation Letter (English and French) to States and WARFM (Dakar) - WP/1 in English and French.
