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 and Australia) as well as private sector representatives (Ardo VLM, BASF, Deutsche Post DHL, FCA Group, Maersk, UPS, Walmart).
