ASACA is a project aiming to the enhancement of airport security in Africa. This project is jointly carried out by ASECNA and the Cellule Régionale d’Assistance à la Sûreté de l’Aviation Civile (CRASAC) under the umbrella of French Ministry of Interior.

Currently deployed in 18 countries, the ASACA project is strengthening competencies of airport personnel involved in airport security issues.

With the resurgence of the terrorist threat on European soil, France is thus working to improve the safety of civil aviation in general by supporting financially, through the ASACA project, both the economic development of strategic partner countries and their efforts to enhance the security of main african international airports.
