Standard
Activity

Schema Object
iati-activity/related-activity

Type of Change
Modify Definition

Issue
Users of data should always be able to detect the hierarchical relationship between activities through inspection of the related activity element.

Proposal
Modify definition of related-activity from:

      “Another separately reported IATI activity that is related to this one. The ‘type’ attribute describes the type of relationship: eg. parent, child, multifunded …”
to:
      “Another separately reported IATI activity that is related to this one. The ‘type’ attribute describes the type of relationship: (eg. parent, child, multifunded. It is strongly recommended that linkage between activities in an hierarchical group should always be managed by use of this element with @type of 1 (parent) or 2 (child).”
**Standards Day** Accepted
