In the existing FTS extension there are separate elements for emergencies and appeals. OCHA has suggested that these, as well as other categorisations that are likely to come along in future, could be normalised into a single element. The proposal is therefore for to have an element (currently named “humanitarian-event”) in which the type of event or action (emergency, appeal, etc) can be specified along with named recognised vocabularies to then provide codes and descriptions for all items.
