COVID-19 Resources

While many GDC members have been remarkably quick to respond to COVID-19 in creative ways, this crisis presents a huge amount of uncertainty for many, if not all, last mile distributors.

There is an urgent need for resources, strategies and tools to enable them to plan for a range of scenarios and phases of the crisis and its aftermath, as explored in our blog in NextBillion. We have already collated insights on strategies that our members are implementing to adapt to and deal with the crisis, as well as additional support they require.

A number of our members are running fundraising campaigns to support communities they work in to respond to the COVID-19 crisis, and some manufacturers and service providers have developed unique offers for last mile distributors, including product discounts and access to new credit lines.
