Implications of Guam's Memebership to CCOP/SOPAC Under the Tarawa Treaty, the Committee shall determine the membership of CCOP/SOPAC. On this, the Committee decided at its 16th Annual Session, that full membership of CCOP/SOPAC will, in the treaty, be restricted to Forum members, though it was also agreed that the Committee could elect to Associate Membership any other Pacific country, which would have a voice but no vote. The above, decision will have direct implication on Guam, which is currently a member of CCOP/SOPAC, and other territories or countries in the South Pacific, outside the membership of the South Pacific Forum, that may wish to seek membership in CCOP/SOPAC. On territories like Guam, an intractable problem encountered is that none of the donors which have provided support for the implementation of CCOP/SOPAC’s programme would permit use of its support for programme activities to be undertaken for Guam. Even USAID support cannot be used for this purpose. This is only because of Guam's special constitutional relationship with the United States of America. Uncategorised (UC) Policy and Governance 1990
