As part of the Project for Support to the Transport Sectors of West and Central Africa (PASTA-CO) - Training Component, Cameroon has hosted a training on animal risk from July 15 to 19, 2019 at the Cameroon Civil Authority’s Training Center at the Douala International Airport.

The training, which was facilitated by an EASA-mandated expert, was attended by several countries in the sub-region, namely: Cameroon, Gabon, Chad, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo, Congo, Sao Tomé and Principe and Rwanda.

The main objective of this training was to provide the participants as regulators with methodologies for assessing animal risk control systems developed and implemented by aerodrome operators. 

This exchange platform also allowed the different participants to exchange and share experiences of their respective states in the fight against animal danger.

The sectorial goal of the PASTA-CO project is to contribute to improving the safety and security of civil aviation and to provide safe, efficient air navigation services in a unified airspace to support trade, and regional socioeconomic integration within the West and Central Africa region. The safety and security supervision capacity building component of the Regional Air Safety Agencies is one of the major elements of this project. 

At the end of the training, the States wished to thank Cameroon and more particularly the CCAA for the arrangements made by the latter for the holding of this training.

It should be noted that it is the Agency for Supervision of Air Safety in Central Africa (ASS-AC) which ensures the implementation of this project. She was represented by its Director of Training Mr. Thierry NKODO at this session.
