Pacific Islands Aviation: Natural Disaster Response, Climate Adaptation and Resilience Workshop

February 13-14, 2024 in Nadi, Fiji

The U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) and U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) are co-hosting this workshop to feature industry and government speakers offering insight and solutions to mitigate the negative impacts of natural disasters on aviation infrastructure in the Pacific Islands. To allow for maximum participation, this workshop will also be livestreamed over Zoom.

Topics at the workshop will include effective strategies to prepare and respond to typhoons, floods, earthquakes, wildfires and volcanic eruptions. Participants will hear case studies of responses to recent natural disasters in the region and in the United States, learn about toolkits and other resources for response planning support, and explore future capabilities and technologies to support aviation stakeholders in the Pacific. ​

​The workshop is held under the U.S.-Southeast Asia and Pacific Aviation Cooperation Program (ACP), a public-private partnership that works with Southeast Asian and Pacific Island aviation stakeholders to design programs that promote technical, policy and commercial cooperation in civil aviation. The ACP is industry-led and supported by USTDA, the FAA, and other U.S. federal agencies. ACP program activities match the needs of partner countries with the technical innovation of U.S. member companies.
