Description :

This session will be a hands-on workshop for adding a country to d:Wikidata:WikiProject Govdirectory. We will cover what kind of general information and sources that would be beneficial to document. We will also help writing queries in order to be able to review if the data in Wikidata is complete and correct.

This will be a flying start to get any country in Africa ready to be listed in the directory at This is also great preparatory work for other projects like WikiProject Every Politician or WikiProject Open Government Data since the basic structures of all public agencies will be reviewed.
