Member agencies of PIP (as of May 2016)

CROP (Council of Regional Organizations of the Pacific) agencies
CROP agencies are intergovernmental agencies established by Pacific countries and territories to provide services to them. Three CROP agencies are particularly responsible for invasives work, are mandated by their member countries and territories to lead and coordinate it in the region, and are PIP members:

With the support and guidance of PIP, the Pacific Invasives Learning Network (PILN) is a professional network for invasive species workers in the Pacific. PILN organises skills and learning exchanges, workshops and meetings, facilitates multi-sector invasives teams in countries, and produces a monthly e-newsletter PILN Soundbites.

PILN acts as the main link between PIP and the Pacific countries and territories.

 Pacific sub-regional representation:

To improve links between PIP agencies and Pacific countries and territories, PIP is in the process of identifying sub-regional representatives for Melanesia and Polynesia to serve on PIP.


Micronesia already has a high-level, sub-regional invasives body, the Micronesia Regional Invasive Species Council, which represents its sub-region on PIP.

PIP is not exclusive — if your agency works on invasives issues in more than one country of the Pacific, and you think it should join PIP, write to
