The OECD’s Development Assistance Committee (DAC) is facing an impasse among its membership on the adoption of controversial new rules that would allow rich countries to report the donation of surplus Covid-19 vaccines as aid. This is a vindication of the struggle civil society organisations have been engaging in for months opposing these new rules.
