CORSIA Regional Seminar in Cairo, Egypt


The ICAO Regional Seminar on the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA) was held in Cairo, Egypt, 7-8 April 2019. Following the initial stage of CORSIA capacity building which has been focusing on the development of Emissions Monitoring Plans, and on the establishment of national regulatory frameworks, the objective of the two days of regional workshops in 2019 was to provide further information on the upcoming CORSIA implementation requirements with a special focus on the monitoring of CO2 emissions, including the approval of Emissions Monitoring Plans by States, and the reporting and verification of CO2 emissions from international aviation to support States in complying with the related provisions of the CORSIA SARPs by early 2020.

The meeting was attended by a total of 47 participants from seven States (Canada, Egypt, France, Oman, Qatar, Spain and Sudan) and three organizations (AACO, ACAO and IATA).
