IATI Org standard for UN System Reporting

(Abdul Riza) #1

This issue was originally added and originally discussed on the previous version IATI Standard Upgrade forum. However that forum has itself now itself moved to the IATI Discuss platform so this topic has been created in order that discussions can continue here.

One of the elements in the original proposal was to add 5 new flow types:

Humanitarian assistance
Peacekeeping operations
Technical cooperation
Normative, treaty-related and knowledge creation activities
Other flows

I doubt that the flow-type element should be used for this classification, since flow-type is meant as a high level classification defining the ‘ruleset’ under which a financial flow is governed (ODA, OOF, Private flows, etc.).

When looking at the attribute values above, I notice these values seem to be more comparable to the OECD DAC Table 1 ‘Aid type’:

This would imply adding another code list ‘Detailed Aid Type’ which reference the current Aid Type code list. I think it is import to converge as much as possible to the OECD existing standards, and not diverge.
