Montreal - The UAE participated at the "High Level Meeting on International Aviation and Climate Change" organised by International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) in Montreal between 7 and 9 October 2009. The UAE was represented to the said meeting by Director General of General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) Saif Al-Suwaidi, UAE's representative to ICAO captain Aisha Al-Hamili and GCAA's air transport advisor Juan Carlos Salazar.

At the meeting, the UAE submitted a working paper on long-term and medium-term plans to reduce emissions that contribute to global climate change.

This High-level Meeting stems from a Resolution of the 36th Session of the ICAO Assembly (Montreal, 18 to 28 September 2007) which recognized the critical importance of ICAO providing continuous leadership to international civil aviation in limiting or reducing its emissions that contribute to global climate change.

Resolution A36-22: Consolidated statement of continuing ICAO policies and practices related to environmental protection requested the convening of a high-level meeting to review the Programme of Action recommended by the Group on International Aviation and Climate Change (GIACC) at an appropriate time, taking into account the fifteenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP 15) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

GIACC was formed by ICAO at the request of the above-mentioned Resolution and is composed of a group of senior government officials representative of all ICAO regions, for the purpose of developing and recommending to the Council an aggressive Programme of Action on International Aviation and Climate Change, based on consensus and reflecting the shared vision and strong will of all Contracting States.

The report of the High-level Meeting will focus on conclusions and recommendations and will be considered by the ICAO Council this Fall, thus enabling ICAO to provide input to COP 15 to be held in Copenhagen in December 2009. - Emirates News Agency, WAM
