Developing Nations Airport (DNA) Assistance Programmes

The Developing Nations Airport (DNA) Assistance Programme’s mandate is to engage in the development of ACI member airports in developing countries, delivering meaningful, sustainable results to help them 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 is achieved by working with ACI’s regional offices in ACI Africa, ACI Asia-Pacific and ACI Latin America Caribbean along with CIFAL-Atlanta United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR).
