Among them, the Global Air & Space Chief’s Conference (GASCC), which ended on Thursday (July 14).
It was attended by 67 Air Force Commanders, including those from Nigeria, Malaysia and Mexico, as well as their representatives. In the opportunity, the FAB Commander signed the Declaration of Intent for Global Air Forces Collaboration on Climate Change. According to the document, all deliberations should be carried out without reducing the operational capabilities of the Air Forces involved, as well as the legislation and policies applicable to each country.
For Lieutenant Brigadier Baptista Junior, the participation in the Conference and the signing of the declaration underscore the commitment to the constant search for increasing the operational capabilities of the Force. “At the Global Air and Space Chief’s Conference, the Commanders of the main Air Forces in the world addressed strategic issues for the future of Air and Space Power, at the highest level. By dealing with relevant issues such as multidomain characteristics (environmental, air, land, sea, cyber and space) of modern conflicts and global partnerships, they seek to strengthen confidence and think about the future”, he concluded. In addition, he stressed that the signing of the Declaration of Intent for Global Air Forces Collaboration on Climate Change represents our commitment to reducing emissions.
