Governance

We are led by collaboration of our donors, organisations comprising the Alliance secretariat, and business partners.

Steering group

Unusual in the world of international development initiatives, the Alliance puts public-private sector collaboration truly at its heart with a steering group made up of representatives of both its donor governments and its business partners.

The steering group comprises a representative from each donor government (United States, Canada, Germany, Denmark, United Kingdom and Australia) as well as private sector representatives (Ardo VLM, BASF, Deutsche Post DHL, FCA Group, Maersk, UPS, Walmart).
