  21. 21. EVALUATORS ROLES Workshop facilitation Meeting observation and periodic interventions (some built into the agenda and some in “real time” to respond to emergent dynamics) to ask questions that will generate reflection and learning on governance Targeted facilitation support for the chartering of the new forums after the workshop
