RESEARCH IN PROGRESS

The effects of air transport on the environment in general, and climate change in particular, as well as the long-term availability of fossil fuel energy, are two of the most challenging issues currently affecting the sector.

Along with the aviation industry and other international institutions, the World Bank takes part in various initiatives to help address these issues. During the fiscal year 2010, the World Bank will conduct research on Air Transport and Energy.
