Global Distributors Collective (hosted by Practical Action)


The Global Distributors Collective (GDC) is a collective of last mile distributors around the world. We are dedicated to supporting distributors to help them reach millions of unserved customers with life-changing products, and to developing the last mile distribution sector as a whole.

We have over 200 members in over 50 countries, who have reached over 33 million people in last mile households with life-changing products such as solar lights, clean cookstoves and water filters.

Our ambition is to make last mile distribution the first priority, so that life-changing products can be made affordable and available to all.
