Pacific Islands Forum & Council of the Regional Organizations of the Pacific
This section provides you with updated information about the
Pacific Islands Forum (PIF) and the other regional organizations of the Pacific
known as the CROP (Council of the Regional Organizations of the Pacific)
In 2012, the Pacific Islands Forum Leaders endorsed that CROP agencies should include: the Pacific Aviation Safety Office (PASO); Pacific Islands Development Programme (PIDP); Pacific Islands Forum Fisheries Agency (PIFFA); Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat (PIFS); Pacific Power Association (PPA); Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC); Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programmed (SPREP); South Pacific Tourism Organisation (SPTO); and the University of the South Pacific (USP).
The CROP provides:
(i) high-level policy advice to Leaders and Members to facilitate policy formulation at national, regional and international levels; and
(ii) a mechanism between the Executives of Pacific regional organisations to coordinate action and review progress of their agencies’ implementation of the Pacific Plan (the overarching regional framework for achieving the Forum Leaders’ vision) and other regional frameworks.
