All the Brazilian Coalition on Climate, Forests and Agriculture's proposals are the result of a process of dialogue and consensus among the several sectors that are part of the movement. To this end, the members' participation is structured as follows:


STRATEGIC AND EXECUTIVE GROUPS
The body responsible for the main Coalition decisions is the Strategic Group (GE), which meets at least four times a year and is responsible for approving all the movement's proposals. The Executive Group (GX) holds a fortnightly call for a general follow-up of the Coalition's actions.

FACILITATORS AND EXECUTIVE COORDINATION

To support the Forums, GE and GX, the Brazilian Coalition has an Executive Coordination, which is responsible for forwarding the orientations of other bodies of the movement. Along with a dedicated team, the coordination also relies upon two facilitators, who are primarily responsible for representing the movement at events and meetings, and for carrying out the dialogue between members in general. The facilitators hold a two-year term of office.

Members of the Executive Coordination and Facilitators are also available on the Action Plan Platform.

Facilitators:
• Marcello Brito - President of the Board of Directors of the Brazilian Agribusiness Association (Abag)
• Rachel Biderman - Senior Vice President for the Americas of Conservation International (CI)

Executive Coordination:

• Joice Oliveira - Operations and Information Management Analyst


DIALOGUE FORUMS AND TASK FORCES

Debates which result in the movement's proposals are carried out in the Brazilian Coalition's four Dialogue Forums (Agriculture and Silviculture, Native Forests, Deforestation, and Public Policies and Economic Instruments), governance bodies open to all those interested in advancing the climate, forests and agriculture agenda.

The Dialogue Forums are broken down into Task Forces, which are intended to forward more specific actions and, hence, allow the Brazil Coalition to gradually advance towards the targets of “2030-2050 Vision: The Future of Forests and Agriculture in Brazil”.
