The Framework expresses a vision for the Pacific as:
“Our Pacific Vision is for a region of peace, harmony, security, social inclusion, and prosperity, so that all Pacific people can lead free, healthy, and productive lives.”
The Framework recognises for Pacific Regionalism to succeed it requires the support, commitment, and ownership of all parties – Pacific people, including governments and administrations, civil society organisations, private sector representatives, regional organisations, development partners, media, and other key stakeholders.
Further to the FPR, in 2019 the Forum Leaders endorsed the development of the 2050 Strategy for the Blue Pacific Continent, which will acknowledge the growing need for urgent and immediate actions on threats and challenges of climate change. The Leaders also agreed that the Strategy must advance resources towards the protection of our Ocean’s health and integrity, sustainably managing our island and ocean resources, promoting air, sea and ICT connectivity to ensure the health and benefit of the people.
In progressing this, the Leaders tasked the review of the regional Council of Regional Organisation in the Pacific (CROP) architecture to ensure that governance and resourcing arrangements are available to deliver the 2050 Strategy for the Blue Pacific Continent.
