Member agencies of PIP (as of May 2011)

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:

Two regional programmes 
operate with the guidance and support of PIP: 

altPacific Invasives Initiative

PII builds the invasive species management capacity of Pacific island countries and territories by providing technical support, training, assistance with proposal and project design, and links to expertise.



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 the PIP CoordinatorDavid Moverley (PIP Coordinator)
