2Although the ICAO work programme is endorsed by the ICAO Assembly on a triennial basis, the Global Plan offers a long-term vision that will assist ICAO, States and industry to ensure continuity and harmonization among their modernization programmes. To find a balance between consolidation and keeping pace with new developments, the GANP will have a more comprehensive update with the 2019 edition, aligned with the Block periods.This edition of the GANP begins by outlining the executive-level context for the air navigation challenges ahead, as well as the need for a strategic, consensus-based and transparent approach to address these challenges.The fifth edition of the ICAO Global Air Navigation Plan GANP is designed to guide complementary and sector-wide air transport progress over 20162030 and is approved triennially by the ICAO Council.The GANP represents a rolling, 15-year strategic methodology which leverages existing technologies and anticipates future developments based on State/industry agreed operational objectives. The Block Upgrades are organized in non-overlapping six-year time increments starting in 2013 and continuing through 2031 and beyond. This structured approach provides a basis for sound investment strategies and will generate commitment from States, equipment manufacturers, operators and service providers.ICAOs 15-year Plan Addressing Global Air Navigation
