Recipient country can be declared just through the relevant code:
<recipient-country code="CG"/>Additionally, the name of the country can also be declared.
<recipient-country code="CG">Democratic Republic of Congo</recipient-country>Where the name of the country is declared in a language other than the default, it is good practice to cite this:
<recipient-country code="CG" xml:lang="fr">Republique Democratique du Congo</recipient-country>When multiple countries are declared, then the percentages should equal 100% for that activity
<recipient-country code="CG" percentage="60"/> <recipient-country code="AO" percentage="40"/>
