This is the reference page for the XML element recipient-region. See also the relevant overview page: Transaction

Definition

A supranational geopolitical region that will benefit from this transaction. If a specific country is not known, then this element MUST be used.

If transaction/recipient-country AND/OR transaction/recipient-region are used THEN ALL transaction elements MUST contain a recipient-country or recipient-region element AND (iati-activity/recipient-country AND iati-activity/recipient-region MUST NOT be used)

Rules

This element must occur no more than once (within each parent element).

Attributes

@code

Either an OECD DAC or UN region code. Codelist is determined by vocabulary attribute.

This attribute is required.

This value must be of type xsd:string.

This value must be on the Region codelist, if the relevant vocabulary is used.

@vocabulary

An IATI code for the vocabulary from which the region code is drawn. If it is not present 1 - ‘OECD DAC’ is assumed.

This value must be of type xsd:string.

This value must be on the RegionVocabulary codelist.

@vocabulary-uri

If the vocabulary is 99 (reporting organisation), the URI where this internal vocabulary is defined.

This value must be of type xsd:anyURI.

Example Usage

Example recipient-region of an iati-activity.

The @code attribute declares a valid code (489) from the Region codelist.
The optional @vocabulary attribute declares a valid code (1) from the RegionVocabulary codelist.
<recipient-region code="489" vocabulary="1" />

If a publisher uses a vocabulary of 99 (i.e. ‘Reporting Organisation’), then the @vocabulary-uri attribute should also be used, for example: .. code-block:: xml

<recipient-region code=”A1” vocabulary=”99” vocabulary-uri=”http://example.com/vocab.html” />

  <transaction ref="1234" humanitarian="1">
   <transaction-type code="1" />
   <transaction-date iso-date="2012-01-01" />
   <value currency="EUR" value-date="2012-01-01">1000</value>
