The GDC adopts a systems approach, implementing ‘collective’ interventions that support the growth of the sector as a whole. We believe that this will ultimately enable us to support a greater number of members to reach last mile customers in the hardest-to-reach places, as well as to catalyse deeper opportunities for peer learning, support and partnerships between members.
While the GDC is global in scope, in our first phase we have adopted a regional focus on East Africa, and aim to expanding our services to other regions in future.
The GDC focuses on two key pillars of activity:
- We help last mile distributors to improve business performance and grow, by providing solutions and services that help save time, reduce costs, build capacity and develop catalytic business partnerships.
- We build a collective voice for the last mile distribution sector by generating and sharing learning and insights, raising the profile of our members, and helping the broader ecosystem to work effectively with distributors to achieve shared impact goals.
