To blindly pursue a vision of sustainable growth in the global civil aviation system without adequate preparedness for serious, irregular, yet reasonably predictable disasters can result in failure, particularly at critical junctures.

Administrations can and have fallen in the aftermath of crises due to perceived unpreparedness. The High-Level Conference on COVID-19 (HLCC) in 2021 underscored the need to enhance crisis management capacity at the organizational level, fostering a more coordinated and integrated response, irrespective of the crisis’s nature.

This panel discussion will examine whether the lessons learned from our collective COVID experience have been applied or if complacency or prioritization of other pressing matters since 2019 has taken hold.

Experts will look at how ICAO’s Standards can be effectively implemented and explore the global challenge of regional sensitivities in crisis preparedness. Don’t miss this conversation that heralds the recent reprioritization of crisis preparedness and response, as well as implementation support, as two of the seven priority focus areas agreed by the Council of ICAO.
