This proposal relates to another proposal (accepted as part of the v2.02 upgrade of the standard) which will allow organisations to use their own internally defined geographic regions.
The IATI standard has a number of attributes/elements where reporting organisation vocabularies can be used as a 'codelist', such as:
- iati-activities/iati-activity/recipient-region/@code (if iati-activities/iati-activity/recipient-region/@vocabulary = 99)
- iati-activities/iati-activity/transaction/recipient-region/@code (if iati-activities/iati-activity/transaction/recipient-region/@vocabulary = 99)
- iati-activities/iati-activity/sector/@code (if iati-activities/iati-activity/sector/@vocabulary = 98 or 99)
- iati-activities/iati-activity/transaction/sector/@code (if iati-activities/iati-activity/transaction/sector/@vocabulary = 98 or 99)
This proposal suggests the addition of an optional attribute for publishers to record the URI where more information about the reporting organisation vocabulary can be found (if 'Reporting organisation' is set as the vocabulary) For example:
