Emissions
Reduction Activities, held in Dakar, Senegal, from
24 to 26 September 2012 (see article
Case Study:
ASECNA Fuel Savings Using IFSET
, Chapter 1 in this report);
• development of various information sharing web-based
portals, including the ICAO Global Framework on Aviation
Alternative Fuels (GFAAF);
• publication of special editions of the ICAO Journal and ICAO
Environmental Report covering the latest developments and
technical issues related to aviation and the environment;
• convening ICAO events (
e.g.
workshops, symposia), to
facilitate information sharing and to initiate discussion with
ICAO Member States and other stakeholders on key areas
related to aviation and the environment.
Moreover, in order to fulfill the Assembly’s request to
facilitate the provision of technical and financial assistance,
as well as to facilitate access to existing and new financial
mechanisms, ICAO organized the “Assistance for Action
– Aviation and Climate Change” (ACLI) Seminar, in
October 2012 in Montreal
5
.
The ACLI Seminar provided States and other stakeholders
with essential information on a range of assistance projects,
including: capacity building; new technologies; financing
for emissions reduction activities; technology transfer; and
technical support. In particular, it highlighted the synergies and
constructive engagement among ICAO, its Member States,
stakeholders, and other international organizations during
the first phase of the initiatives related to State Action Plans.
Currently, consistent with the
Strategic Plan for the Provision
of Assistance for States’ Action Plans
, ICAO TCB is involved
in a number of large scale projects (
e.g.
in Indonesia) and
offers technical support to States to develop their respective
action plans.
Assistance to States to Develop Action Plans
In addition to requesting the ICAO Council to provide guidance
and other technical assistance for the preparation of States'
action plans, Assembly Resolution A37-19 also requested the
Council to study, identify and develop processes and mechanisms
to facilitate the provision of technical and financial assistance. The
Council was also asked to work to facilitate access to existing
and new financial resources, technology transfer and capacity
building for developing countries, and to initiate specific measures
to assist developing States as well as to facilitate access to
financial resources, technology transfer and capacity building.
(see article
Assistance and Financing Opportunities for Emissions
Reduction Measures
, Chapter 6 in this report).
ICAO has since developed and implemented a robust capacity
building programme to assist States, in particular, with the
preparation and submission of action plans within the 2010
to 2013 timeframe. The programme components include:
• development of a detailed guidance manual;
• development of a web interface for States’ action plans;
• convening seven hands-on training workshops for States
action plans, worldwide;
• development of the
Strategic Plan for the Provision of
Assistance for States’ Action Plans
with the ICAO Technical
Cooperation Bureau (TCB) in order to assist States develop
their action plans;
• provision of assistance through 200 conference calls, to
identify and respond to specific requests from States;
• development of appropriate tools (ICAO Fuel Savings
Estimation Tool (IFSET)

, ICAO Carbon Emissions Calculator)
(see article
ICAO Environmental Tools
, Chapter 1 in this report);
• assistance to various Air Navigation Service Providers
in quantifying emissions reductions accrued through
navigational measures. For example, assistance provided
to ASECNA in quantifying emissions was presented by
ASECNA during the ICAO Regional Hands-on Training

ICAO Technical Cooperation – Implementation
Measures – Indonesia Action Plan
ICAO-TCB will be working directly on the new large-scale
environmental measures project with the Directorate
General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) of Indonesia. The agreed
objective is to assist in developing measures such as:
Indonesian Implementation Master Plan, including the
Institutional and management aspects, legislative and
capacity improvement, as appropriate, to support
implementation measures of the State Action Plan on
carbon emissions reduction, Green Flights and Green
Airports operational programmes, more efficient airspace
design utilizing performance-based navigation guidelines,
advice on appropriate market-based measures, initiatives
related to alternative fuels, the development of a
comprehensive emissions inventory, as well as a database
system that includes oversight programme measures.
