Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia on Tuesday said International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with International Solar Alliance (ISA) to check the growth of CO2 emissions in the international aviation sector.

"Proud moment for India as Int'l Civil Aviation Org signs MoU with Int'l Solar Alliance, initiative 1st proposed by PM Modi. Jointly hosted by India& France, event marks a new dawn for solar energy use in global civil aviation sector," tweeted Scindia.

At COP 26, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced India's Panchamrit strategy with ambitious targets for climate action. Initiatives like International Solar Alliance (ISA) and the Coalition for Disaster Resilient Infrastructure (CDRI) reflect India's global leadership in ensuring affordable, reliable energy for all and protecting critical infrastructure for sustainable development.

"Participated in a conference with Heads of Delegations of 6 #APAC countries of the @icao Council to strengthen cooperation on civil aviation issues. Also, invited them for an APAC Ministerial Conference to be hosted by India early next year," tweeted ICAO.

ICAO Secretary General, Juan Carlos Salazar formalized a new MOU between ICAO and ISA to scale up the deployment of solar energy solutions for aircraft, airports, and other aviation-related applications.

"ICAO Secretary General @JCS_ICAO formalized a new MOU between ICAO and the @isolaralliance (ISA) today, aimed at scaling up the deployment of solar energy solutions for aircraft, airport, and other aviation-related applications. #ReconnectingTheWorld," tweeted ICAO.

In closing remarks, Salazar highlighted how this year's fair had highlighted an array of challenges in bringing aviation innovations to reality.

"In closing, @JCS_ICAO calls on all innovators and regulators to continue their efforts for more diversity, inclusivity and collaboration for #FutureAviation solutions," tweeted Salazar.

The ICAO is a United Nations specialized agency that works with its 193 member states to set and audit safety, security, emissions, navigation, and facilitation standards to shape and improve international air operations. (ANI)
