The International Civil Aviation Organization, a UN Specialized Agency, is the global forum for civil aviation.

ICAO works to achieve its vision of safe, secure and sustainable development of civil aviation through cooperation amongst its member States.

To implement this vision, the Organization has established the following Strategic Objectives for the period 2005-2010:

  • Safety - Enhance global civil aviation safety

  • Security - Enhance global civil aviation security

  • Environmental Protection - Minimize the adverse effect of global civil aviation on the environment

  • Efficiency - Enhance the efficiency of aviation operations

  • Continuity - Maintain the continuity of aviation operations

  • Rule of Law - Strengthen law governing international civil aviation

The ICAO website maintains a Postal History page: 

The Postal History of ICAO provides an unusual approach in the history of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO); this history is based on the philatelic material, i.e. stamps and covers, related to ICAO. The historical episodes of this Organization start from the Chicago Convention (1944); however, the predecessors Organizations and Conferences are full part of this postal history.  (
