Developing Nations Assistance 

ACI Developing Nations Airport Assistance (ACI-DNA) Programme
With the accelerating growth of aviation worldwide, the need to increase airport excellence in the fields of management, economics, safety, security and operations in developing countries is also growing.

In order for ACI to play an even stronger role and to increase the capacity already provided by the semi-annual ACI Fund seminars, the World Governing Board has approved the creation of an additional programme known as the ACI Developing Nations Airport Assistance (ACI-DNA) Programme.
ACI-DNA mission
Lead ACI’s effort to provide assistance to member airports in developing countries.
ACI DNA mandate
Manage ACI’s assistance programme effectively to achieve meaningful, sustainable results and engage in development of ACI member airports in developing countries, enabling those members’ effort to realize their development objectives.

The ACI-DNA Programme’s objective is to support member airports in developing countries. It will do so by aiding airport initiatives that are sustainable, have impact, and bring results to those airport members.

This will be achieved by working with ACI’s regional offices in ACI Africa, ACI Asia-Pacific and ACI Latin America Caribbean along with CIFAL-Atlanta United National Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR).
