Use Feature Layer Attribute as GP Service Input

I'm trying to click on a country layer and use the country name as input for a GP tool. I've done this with XY inputs from map clicks, but I'm having a lot of trouble getting the attribute from a feature. Do I need a query task? Here is my code snippet. When I add content to the infoWindow, it displays "Country: ${NAME}" so it's not pulling that attribute from the feature layer correctly.


var country = {};

var countriesLayer = new FeatureLayer("http://<ourserver>/arcgis/rest/services/Countries_Outline/MapServer/1");
          var content = "<b>Country</b>: ${NAME}";
          map.on("click", function(evt){
          var graphic = new Graphic(evt.mapPoint);

            map.infoWindow.setTitle("Forecast Reports");
            var today = new Date();
            var todayISO = today.toISOString().slice(0,10).replace(/-/g,"");
            var link = domConstruct.create("a",{
                "class": "action",
                "id": "reportLink",
                "innerHTML": "Forecast Report", //text that appears in the popup for the link
                "href": "javascript: void(0);"
              }, query(".actionList", map.infoWindow.domNode)[0]);
          on(link, "click", function(){
            domAttr.set(dom.byId("reportLink"), "innerHTML", "Generating Report...");
            window.gp_chart = new Geoprocessor("http://<ourserver>/arcgis/rest/services/Generate_Forecast_Report/GPServer/CreateReport");
               var country =;
              var taskParams = {
