About the Event
ICAO Global Implementation Support Symposium 2022
Join us at the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) Global Implementation Support Symposium (GISS) to be held in Istanbul, Türkiye, from 28 June to 1 July 2022. Hosted by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation of Türkiye, this inaugural event will combine ICAO’s World Aviation Forum (IWAF), the Global Aviation Cooperation Symposium (GACS) and the Global Aviation Training and TRAINAIR PLUS Symposium. The aim of merging these events is to highlight the Organization’s latest digital tools, key initiatives, and collaborative endeavours to support aviation recovery, innovation, resilience, sustainable development and operational solutions beyond the COVID-19 pandemic. These topics will also be discussed as part of ICAO’s efforts to support the realization of the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals set in the UN 2030 Agenda and ICAO’s No Country Left Behind (NCLB) initiative.
Interactive panels will focus on the theme “Reconnecting the World: Runway to Aviation Recovery” and include discussions on how ICAO supports Member States in the implementation of ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPS), and Global, Regional and National Aviation Plans, through innovative implementation support and training activities. The GISS 2022 will also serve as a platform to unite current and prospective Technical Cooperation Partners, TRAINAIR PLUS Programme (TPP) Members, and other industry stakeholders, including but not limited to: Ministries, Directorates General of Civil Aviation, international and regional organizations, high level participants representing aviation service providers (i.e. air navigation service providers, airport operators, airlines), financial and development institutions, human resources departments, and project/procurement sections, and academic institutions.
