ICAO signs memo of understanding

The International Civil Aviation Organization, the Office for Latin America and the Caribbean of the International Council of Airports and PAHO/WHO have signed a memo of understanding to develop a joint program of activities that will promote the preparation, updating or adoption of emergency plans in airports. Each organization will provide technical advice and information in their particular area of expertise: ICAO in the integration of all civilian aviation authorities; ICA in promoting the participation of all airports in the Region; and PAHO in the coordination of health sector matters. They will also design tools to evaluate the plans. The current memo of understanding is valid for five years.
