Until just recently, the aviation community was facing major challenges in order to find ways to adapt to the rapid pace of new technologies, as well as the need to provide an effective oversight by the Civil Aviation Authorities. For over a decade, regional collaboration through such mechanisms as Regional Safety Oversight Organizations (RSOOs), and COSCAPs have been effective in supporting States with these challenges, thus strengthening global aviation safety as a whole.
With the unexpected and unprecedented impact of COVID-19, ICAO is working with the aviation community to find the appropriate mitigation strategies for the fast, effective and safe recovery of industry. One of the most important principles of this recovery is the harmonization of those mitigation strategies. More than ever, the relevance of RSOOs as the enablers of such harmonized mitigations is crucial.
This webinar discusses the importance of regional cooperation and the role of RSOOs to support Member States in times of crisis.
