Add name to administrative levels


(Sebastian Dimunzio) #1

It could be really useful to have a name element within administrative node in order to report the name of each level.
Example:

<administrative code="370230" vocabulary="G1" level="2">
<name>
<Narrative>Meheisa</Narrative> 
</name>
</administrative>

That would align well with HXL. We allow the code via the +code attribute (e.g. #adm1 +code) and the name via the _+name+ attribute (e.g. #adm1 +name), optionally in multiple languages (#adm1+name+i_ar, #adm1+name+i_fr, etc). It would be good to be able to represent all of that in IATI when we start mapping back and forth.
