COUNCIL OF REGIONAL ORGANISATIONS IN THE PACIFIC (CROP)

C H A R T E R

The Council of Regional Organisations in the Pacific (CROP) exists to ensure that regional organisations pursue their collective aim of achieving sustainable development in the Pacific Island Countries and territories in the most effective and efficient manner. All agencies are involved in facilitating and progressing human development of the Pacific islands. CROP seeks to ensure that, through coordinated and cooperative action, the best results are achieved in the interests of the people of the region.

CROP will keep abreast of existing and emerging issues so that :

  • Member organisations are aware of relevant developments;
  • Organisations achieve the highest possible returns;
  • Activities are complementary and achieve effective results;
  • Information and resources are effectively shared.

CROP provides the vehicle for the formulation and dissemination of the regional Strategy on Development Priorities. This strategy informs decisions on regional development priorities. The success of CROP will be measured not only by evidence of close working relationships, but ultimately by improved conditions in the Pacific Island Countries and territories.

CROP members undertake to work together in addressing the constraints and problems of island development, and to providing the necessary services.

The efforts of CROP members will be directed towards achieving their aim through mutual support and cooperation. CROP members will achieve their individual mandates more effectively by working together.

President of the Republic Of Palau, His Excellency Johnson Toribiong, National Authorising Officer, Darren Fritz, Distinguished Guests, Ladies & Gentlemen

On behalf of the Director-General of the Secretariat of the Pacific Community, Dr. Jimmie, Rodgers, I extend a warm welcome to all who are here to witness this occasion. This unveiling ceremony of a plaque to recognise the key stakeholders in the establishment of this National Emergency Operations Centre in Palau. The key stakeholders namely the Government and people of Palau as beneficiaries, the European Union as the development partner, and the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (more commonly referred to as the SPC) as your facilitating regional organisation.

Mr President, It gives me great pleasure to be here today to participate in this important ceremony. I am accompanied by Mr Amena Yauvoli the Manager of the SPC North Pacific Regional Office, he of course is well known to many of you.

I have had the privilege over many years to 2005 to work with Palau in my capacity as Deputy Director of SOPAC, then the Pacific Islands Applied Geoscience Commission. In March 2007, I was here as a consultant for SOPAC, and my mission was to work with the Office of the Vice President and staff of the National Emergency Management Office (NEMO), to develop the implementation plan for a Project which included the construction of a National  Emergency Operations Centre. In my capacity here today as the Director of SOPAC, now the Applied Geoscience and Technology Division of the SPC, it gives me a unique pleasure to be able witness the completion of this building.
