The size of the delegation, the infrequency of
the meeting dates, and the often lengthy agendas require a proficient
Facilitator to aid the CC in smooth meeting process.

In the past, the GPUS has relied on different methods including

the meeting date. Committees, Caucuses, and State Parties will send
names and qualifications of recommended facilitators to the ANMC. It is
encouraged that Committees, Caucuses and States consider the
qualifications such as experience and familiarity with the Green
Consensus process. No candidate who is registered with another party

facilitators for any given time period to ensure backup if needed.
Gender balance is strongly encouraged. The ANMC will notify the CC of
the facilitation schedule no later than two weeks before the national
