ICAO is calling upon its global partners to work together in designing, funding and implementing programmes for the benefit of civil aviation stakeholders worldwide. The high cost associated with aviation infrastructure development and capacity building can dissuade States and donors to move forward in their aviation activities. Airports, air traffic control systems, and other critical aviation infrastructure can be expensive to build and maintain, and governments or private investors may be hesitant to commit to such a large investment without a clear return on investment. Securing relevant funding for capacity building projects in aviation requires a comprehensive understanding of the regulatory environment, financial landscape, and political climate. Collaboration and coordination among stakeholders, as well as a strong business case for the investment, are critical to success. This panel will address these challenges and provide a platform to share best practices to bridge the funding gap.
