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 and Denmark) as well as private sector representatives (Abbott, Ardo VLM, BASF, Deutsche Post DHL, Toyota North America, UPS, Walmart).
