Summary The African continent is important to U.S. economic, strategic, and foreign policy interests, and efforts have been made to improve commerce and connectivity to benefit the two regions. However, the continent has the highest aviation accident rate in the world, which has hindered progress. Recognizing the importance of improving aviation safety in Africa, the United States and the international aviation community have worked to improve aviation safety in Africa. This congressionally requested report discusses (1) challenges in improving aviation safety in Africa, (2) key U.S. efforts to improve aviation safety in Africa and the extent to which they address the identified challenges, and (3) international efforts to improve aviation safety in Africa. To address these issues, GAO synthesized literature and aviation safety data, interviewed federal officials, and visited four African countries. The Secretary of Transportation should (1) lead a collaborative effort to reassess the SSFA program's goals and identify the level of budgetary and human capital resources necessary to achieve those goals and (2) develop a comprehensive strategy to lead efforts to coordinate the governmentwide resources available to accomplish the program's goals.
