19 Steering Committee Meeting COSCAP- SA th Presentation from CAA Nepal Where is Nepal ? Area: Almost 57000 square mile Population: Almost 30 CHINA million NEPAL INDIA

Where is Nepal ? Mount Everest 44 Domestic Airports 1 International Airport with - 25 International Operators - Up to 380 movements a day - 14 Domestic operators - 120 aircraft on registration COSCAP-SA The journey that began in 1997 from Bangkok with the first Steering Committee Meeting of the Director

Generals of Civil Aviation of seven South Asian states with the intent to cooperate in removing deficiencies in their flight safety oversight capabilities in association with ICAO, by now has come along a long way. The program that was focused mainly in flight operations and the airworthiness in the beginning has been now expanded to aerodrome safety and ATM too. COSCAP-SA Nepal appreciate the COSCAP-SA's effort in providing a dedicated forum

for continuing dialogue, coordination and fostering cooperation in resolving various safety issues and creating an environment of harmonization However, several issues as rightly noted by ICAO Regional Director in his opening address including the question of honest appraisal of the program is very important. Nepal would like to draw the attention of the meeting on few remarks the Program coordinator had noted while presenting the progress

report 2009 (DP 1). - Absence of response or overly delayed communication between the States and Program. - States non commitment to facilitate execution of the Annual Work Program. - States non participation at the Nepal s observation

National Coordinators could have played a very important role to rectify above shortcomings. However, neither the State nor the Program is able to mobilize and utilize the National coordinators properly. NC is involved in every meetings and activities of the programs. But still, it is disappointing to note for not being able to motivate and mobilize the NC in bridging the gap between the Program and the state.

The Program and the states must mobilize Nepal s observation The Program should utilize the available advanced means of communication for effective coordination and mobilizing the NCs and must minimize the numbers of meetings.

More emphasis should be on actions rather than meetings. Considering the budgetary deficit Nepal, would like to suggest to review the proposed AWP to tune along with the resources available. It is also to be noted that member states may not be able to or need to participate in all training programs organized by COSCAP. Participation may depend largely Nepal s observation Nepal fully support the idea of establishing and strengthening COSCAP as a strong and effective

Regional Safety Oversight Organization (RSOO). Regarding the concept of ICAO Councils proposal for establishing a separate Regional Aviation Safety Group (RSAG), Nepals suggestion is, if possible, to explore a mechanism so that RSOO also report directly to ICAO Regional Office so that RSOO itself may COSCAP & CAA Nepal

So far as Nepal is concerned, it is always committed to COSCAP concept and principle. Nepal has been so far successful in convincing and educating the industry partners also regarding the importance of COSCAP for the harmonization and safety enhancement. As a result, they are active members of NAST and they are participating in most of the COSCAP programs. However, this time they seems to be bit disappointed as they

COSCAP & CAA Nepal In Nepal NAST is playing an active role in reviewing and implementing safety initiatives recommended by SARAST. It has also been proved as an important forum in bringing together all the stakeholders involved in the safety and thereby creating a coordinated approach to solve the underlying safety issues. SARI in Nepal Just last week, we had SARI catch up program organized in Nepal. The

Industry participation in the program was very much encouraging. Through this program we have been able to educate the importance of harmonization to the industry partners. A working group has been assigned from Nepal. Nepal is going to host the meeting of the SARI Working group next July. COSCAP's support to Nepal

We sincerely appreciate COSCAP's support to Nepal during the aerodrome certification process, SMS training and planning. Nepal has taken full advantage of generic manuals and guidiance materials developed by COSCAP to customize as per our needs. ICAO USOAP Audit was a great challenge for us - COSCAP-SA's assistance for the audit preparation and also its support

during the audit period was a great help for us. It is because of the COSCAP's support Nepal has been able to complete USOAP Audit successfully. CAA Nepal would like to thank sincerely to CAA Nepal: Our strength It is due to COSCAP's support, knowledge

and exposure gained from the different programs organized by COSCAP-SA, Nepal is able to reduce deficiencies and gradually increase its safety oversight capabilities. After the Audit Report we have prepared relevant corrective action plan through which we expect to reduce our deficiency significantly. So far as contribution to COSCAP is concerned we do not have any dues. Experiences and knowledge we have obtained in the field of Birds Control Measure is very remarkable. Nepal will be

CAA Nepal: Our Weakness CAA Nepal has a very dedicated and devoted human resources, however, lack of adequate Manpower in safety oversight specially in airworthiness and flight operation is still a problem for us. Besides, retaining the trained and expert manpower is another problem for us On the above background let me emphasize a bit more on our present challenges During the time when global air transport is seriously affected by volatile fuel price and

global recession Nepal's air transport industry remain unaffected. Due to the favorable policy followed by the government both the domestic as well as International passengers growth continued. Subsequently air traffic movement also increased significantly. As a liberal policy followed by the government subsequent to the declaration of the year 2011 as a Nepal Tourism Year, 6 new international operators started their schedule operations in 2009 alone. Another 3 international operators are in pipeline. Challenges and

opportunities This unprecedented growth of air traffic produced many challenges as well as opportunities. Immediate challenge is the problems as a result of air traffic congestion in the only international airport resulting excessive work load to ATC. Immediate impact of the growth The

congestion in the only international airport TIA ; in the ground as well as in the sky. Excessive workload to ATC. We have taken various measures both immediate and long term to address the problem Our immediate attention At the moment our attention is focused on - enhancing the airspace capacity and - determination of ATC capacity in

TIA. CAA Nepal is in process for the phase wise implementation of SMS. In course of implementing SMS in ATS, Nepal wants to share knowledge and experiences of member states Nepal would appreciate any help from COSCAP or member states to assist us in determining ATC and Air Route capacity. Thank you
