State Action Plans Implementation

Verifavia provides technical assistance to States in the design and implementation of State Action Plans or Action Plans on Emissions Reduction (APER).



The development and submission of an APER is not the end goal, but the beginning of a multi-year effort to reduce the impact of international aviation on the global climate, while ensuring that aviation continues to grow in a sustainable manner. After the APER has been finalized, a State will need to set in motion a process to implement the relevant measures in the action plan.  

Unfortunately, it might be the case that States who prepare and submit their APER to ICAO encounter problems and have difficulty proceeding to the implementation stage.

Our APER expert team will work with all stakeholders in order to facilitate the effective implementation of the most relevant and cost-efficient mitigation projects for international aviation that are listed in the APER.

Various stakeholders will be involved in, and actively contribute to, the implementation of the selected measures. Continuous consultation and coordination between the various stakeholders will be essential to the successful implementation of the action plan.

Our APER expert team can act as project manager or coordinator for the implementation of the mitigation actions, or provide support to a local project manager or coordinator.


Our APER team would first consider, propose and implement options to track the implementation of mitigation actions.

Our APER team will then bring together all stakeholders involved in the design and implementation of actions, such as aircraft and engine manufacturers, air carriers, air navigation service providers, airport operators, local authorities, etc. 

For each mitigation project, the team will describe any specific needs (financial, technological, capacity building) for the implementation, and indicate the time of implementation (start date and date of full implementation with all intermediary steps).

It is important to note that the whole process is an iterative one that can be constantly 
refined based on experience gained with the implementation of mitigation projects.

To monitor progress towards the implementation of their action plans, the team will regularly collect data from all relevant stakeholders reflecting their accomplishments, as well as the challenges they face in realizing their mitigation actions.

Updated information could be provided on the most recent trends in CO2 emissions and the implementation status of mitigation actions. 

Regular progress reports will be delivered to the stakeholders and local coordinator.
