HIGHLIGHTS

  • African states’ ability to respond to violent conflict, transnational threats, natural disasters, and other security challenges is severely constrained by limited airlift capacity.

POINTS SAILLANTS

  • L’aptitude des États africains à intervenir dans les conflits violents et à faire face aux menaces transnationales, aux catastrophes naturelles et aux autres défis relatifs à la sécurité est gravement entravée par leurs capacités limitées de transport aérien.

  • À l’instar des institutions multilatérales dans d’autres parties du monde, l’Union africaine et les Communautés économiques régionales d’Afrique doivent rechercher des partenariats et des accords de mise en commun des ressources afin d’améliorer les capacités de transport aérien.
