ICAO World Aviation Forum 2019

ICAO World Aviation Forum 2019

The SkyLive Stream of IWAF2019 is brought to you by Airports Council International (ACI) - www.aci.aero

With the theme of “Innovation in Aviation”, the 2019 Forum was designed for high-level government officials responsible for aviation, transport, science and technology, finance, economic planning, trade, international development and cooperation, and other key portfolios, as well as industry partners and high-tech companies.

During the Forum, a series of interactive sessions led to the development of policies, business models, regulatory processes and governance that will drive innovation for sustainable aviation development. Furthermore, making frontier technologies accessible and affordable can contribute to the early realization of the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals set in the UN 2030 Agenda and will support ICAO’s No Country Left Behind (NCLB) initiative.

The Forum was held in parallel with the Innovation Fair which showcased a range of new technologies and ideas that are being applied, or have the potential to be applied, to aviation.
