Our Role and History

ICAO and Development

ICAO was originally created to promote the safe and efficient development of civil aviation; as one of the oldest members of the UN System, it is well known for its prominent role as the world's rule-making body for international civil aviation.

One aspect of the Organization's work over the last four decades has been to help States improve civil aviation in their country through projects implemented under ICAO's Technical Co-operation Programme.

ICAO offers technical co-operation in the civil aviation field through its Technical Co-operation Bureau (TCB), which was created in 1952. As ICAO is the United Nations specialized agency for civil aviation, projects in civil aviation funded by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) are entrusted to TCB for execution.

TCB also carries out projects funded by developing countries themselves or by various funding institutions other than UNDP. For this work, ICAO receives administrative fees which are used to cover its cost of administering project activities.
