ECAC has established environment as one of its key priorities, conscious that the environmental impacts of the aviation sector must be mitigated if aviation is to continue to be successful as an important facilitator of sustainable development.
Issues related to aviation and the environment are ever-present on the agenda of ECAC DGCA meetings, and also on those of ECAC's high-level meetings with regional partners and organisations, and in ECAC's memorandums of understanding or cooperation with them.
On 4 May 2017, ECAC Directors General adopted a new structure in the field of environment, in view of its implementation in October 2017. This new structure takes into account developments following the 39th ICAO Assembly held in 2016, expectations from Member States in terms of efficiency in the use of limited resources, and the need for capacity building.
