This submission has been accepted for WikiConference North America 2021.


Add your country to WikiProject Govdirectory


Global & Local

Type of session:



This session will be a hands-on workshop for adding a country to d:Wikidata:WikiProject Govdirectory or improving one already added. 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, state or province 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.

Special requests:

Have you presented on this topic previously? If yes, where/when?:

In the hackathon for Wikimania we had a presentation on hacking on the website, but this is focused on editing Wikidata.

If your submission is not accepted, would you be open to presenting your topic in another part of the program? (e.g. lightning talk or unconference session)
