International Civil Aviation Day2011

On the occasion of its 50th anniversary, ICAO, born on 7December 1944, established International Civil Aviation Day in 1994 through an Assembly. In 1996, on the initiative of ICAO and with thehelp of the Canadian Government, the United Nations General Assembly officially recognized 7th December as International Civil Aviation Day.
ICAO is a specialized agency of the United Nations which was created to promote international parameters and regulations essential for the security, efficiency and regularity of air transport and serve as a medium for coordination in the sector of civil aviation.

Objectives of ICAO
The purpose of the global celebration is to create and consolidate worldwide awareness of the significanceof international civil aviation in the economic and social development of nations, and explain the role of ICAO in promoting the safety, efficacyand consistency of international air transport.

Theme of 2009 International Civil Aviation Day
The theme of last year's International Civil Aviation Day was "Promoting global friendship and understanding". These celebrations commemorated the establishment of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).

Since the outset, the vision for international aviation hasbeen to promote cordial relationship and understanding amongst peoples of the entire world, as well as peace and progress based on a universal air transport structure that would be functioned soundly and economically, with equal opportunity to all.
The vision simultaneously became reality through ICAO promoting global cooperation and consensus among 90 Member Countries to create and maintain a systematic regulatory infrastructure, thereby showcasing the immense economic, traditionaland social benefits of air transport to the whole populations around the world.
Meanwhile States announced that aviation would grow in an environmentally sustainable fashion by agreeing on stringent engine emissions quality, effective operational methods and concrete environmental policies through the ICAO process.
Future Prospects and Planning
A high-level meeting of states representing 93% of commercial air traffic across the world in October 2009,  reached agreement on how governments can work further with the industry to cut down aviation’s repercussion on climate change.

Member States of ICAO agreed to:
*.2% universal annual development fuel efficiency by the year 2050.
*.A Co2 global standard for aircraft has to be featured.
*.Coordination of events and activities by all countrieson emissions of Co2 through ICAO.
*.Steps to help improving states and facilitate access to economic resources, technology transfer and potential developing.
*.Facilitate the improvement and implementation of alternative fuels, which can drastically reduce the repercussion of aviation emissions on the environment and assist address problems of economics and supply security.
In 2011, these recommendations will be put forth by the ICAO Assembly as part of the constant drivefor facilitating universal mutual agreement towards internationally synchronized solutions for a sustainable aviation industry and a healthy world for future generations.

Current Scenario
Today thousands of passenger and cargo flights that cross our skies have become the one of the major contributing economies on every continent. They generate revenues with access to the global marketplace, especially important for land-locked or small-island countries, and they are an integral part of the world’s largest industry, tourism and travel.
Since its inception, ICAO’s role has been playing a crucial role in developing the aviation infrastructure. After a lapse of 65 years, it remains the universal platform where countries have and will continue to gather in cooperation with the sectors and other stakeholders, to address any and all issues witnessingthe global air transport sector.
