The guidance describes which codes should be used and which should not – I think @andylolz has a nice list
Indeed yes! See:
The above lists all current DAC 5 digit sector (purpose) codes. It includes a “Budget status” column, indicating any issues identified in mapping the code to recipient country budgets. So codes for which this column is empty are fine to use; codes for which this column is populated are not. This was generated in accordance with the methodology described in the guidance Mark links to. In fact, it’s the list I used to generate the graph for this blogpost on the topic.
perhaps this is something @IATI-techteam could consider adding to the
Sector codelist to make clear which codes are compatible with budget alignment and which are not?
^^ this is a great suggestion – this would be really useful.
