FCFA, together with the Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN) and Wikimedia South Africa (WMZA), convened Africa’s first Wikipedia edit-a-thon on climate change in Cape Town, South Africa from 6-8 August 2019. The aim was to address the ‘Africa Gap’ on Wikipedia by increasing the contributions from African researchers on climate change information thereby making African climate information more accessible and representative of the climate research being done. It was also held to build the capacity of African researchers in contributing to Wikipedia.
