I'm rather new to IATI, but it seems to me that data published in IATI is answering the question 'where does the money go to? One way to answer this question is of course to indicate the sector and country/location of the aid activity, but in the end aid is about the type and number of beneficiaries served. Could and should it, therefore, not be part of the standard to have a universal codelist for beneficiary categories (e.g. 1: children, 3: internally displaced people, 7: people living with HIV/AIDS) and target group categories (e.g. 1: Community-based Organizations, 3: Educational institutes, etc.)?
