ICAO undertook a thematic review of how its work contributes to the above-mentioned goals. This analysis was guided by 4 specific questions, which looked at progress and gaps; lessons learned; emerging issues; activities particularly ensuring inclusiveness; gaps in political guidance and policy recommendations on ways to accelerate progress in empowering people, ensuring inclusiveness and equality, and achieving SDGs. The results of the review are captured below.
