Modernization of Air Navigation Systems component will improve air traffic safety and efficiency as well as strengthen resilience for air traffic navigation during bad weather through the modernization of air navigation systems. 3. Institutional Strengthening component will strengthen the institutional capacity of the Government of Saint Lucia (GoSL) in managing, developing, operating, and overseeing their airports and air transport operations through a combination of regional and Saint Lucia’s specific technical assistance activities. 4.
