Course overview

Course Overview

The growing concern about climate change and the adverse environmental and community impacts represent significant barriers towards the growth of aviation. States need to regulate and improve the environmental performance of the aviation sector ensuring compatibility with global minima. States need to prepare for climate change challenges that may put at risk aviation infrastructure or passengers, and provide fact-based information to consumers to support decision making.

This course is designed to provide an overview of the key environmental challenges, at a global and local scale. By addressing the key global initiatives to minimise the impact on the environment and global climate the course aims at helping members of the civil aviation community and especially those in a regulatory role to identify actions to enable the sustainable development of the aviation sector.

Who should attend?

  • Personnel from civil aviation administrations recently tasked with the environment or climate change-related duties
  • Aviation professionals concerned with environment or climate change issues, consultants, planners, infrastructure developers, think tank and local community stakeholders

  • Best practices (technological, operational, regulatory) to limit or reduce the impact of aviation on noise, local air quality and the global climate
  • State Action Plan on greenhouse gas reduction activities and market-based measures (e.g. CORSIA)
  • Future concepts/developments (aircraft, airports, systems, etc.) and impact on the environment
  • Building resilience to climate change; risk identification and best climate adaptation practices
  • Improving the sustainability of civil aviation from the perspective of the regulator
