Resolving copyvio claims[edit]

As the author, I would like to work to the claims made by Nikkimaria, towards their resolution.

Looking at these, I can see only one-two in each that are particularly problematic. The rest are either statistics or random phrases. They are properly cited. How may I go about resolving this? --Simfan34 (talk) 19:21, 7 August 2013 (UTC)

Even if they are properly cited, there can still be problems with paraphrasing because you're presenting phrasing from the source as original to Wikipedia. You should either make it clear that these are direct quotes, or reword the affected sections. See here for more details on how to deal with the problems. Nikkimaria (talk) 02:32, 8 August 2013 (UTC)
A quick spot check confirms close paraphrasing issues. For example:

[1] On completion it is expected to produce 6,000 megawatts which will make it Africa's largest hydroelectric power plant. It is also expected to have a large reservoir of around 70 billion cubic meters which is scheduled to start filling next year. ...the dam is expected to produce 6,000 megawatts, which will make it Africa’s largest hydroelectric power plant. The dam is expected to have a reservoir of around 70 billion cubic meters, which is scheduled to start filling in 2014.
[2] Egypt, Ethiopia and Sudan established an International Panel of Experts to review and assess the study reports of the dam. The panel consists of 10 members; 6 from the three countries and 4 international in the fields of water resources and hydrologic modelling, dam engineering, socioeconomic, and environmental. The panel held its fourth meeting in Addis Ababa in November 2012. It reviewed documents about the environmental impact of the dam and visited the dam site. The panel submitted its preliminary report to the respective governments at the end of May 2013. Although the full report has not been made public, and will not be until it is reviewed by the governments, Egypt and Ethiopia both released details. The Ethiopian government stated that, according to the report, the dam meets international standards and will be beneficial to Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia. According to Egyptian government, the report found that the dimensions and size of the dam should be changed.

[3] The unmet need for family planning in Ethiopia has declined, and the contraceptive prevalence rate has doubled in 5 years. Based on the current trends, contraceptive prevalence rates will reach 65% by 2015 by reaching additional 6.2 million women and adolescent girls.

[4] The Ministry was somewhat beholden to a donor community that was vertically focused on HIV/AIDS, TB, and malaria programs when Tedros first assumed his leadership position with a horizontal, systems-based agenda. With little economic surplus, the country lacked capacity to build its own health systems, and much of the Ethiopian human resources for health had fled the country.

With little economic surplus, the country lacked capacity to build its own health systems, and much of the Ethiopian human resources for health had fled the country- for example, there are more Ethiopian doctors in the Chicago metropolitan area than in Ethiopia.
This ground was one of partnership built on engagement of complementary partners. Tedros brought to the partnership the leadership to sustain focus on the selected agenda, the political acumen to facilitate enabling legislation as needed, and first-hand knowledge of what was needed. President Clinton and the Clinton HIV/AIDS Initiative (CHAI) brought to the partnership a commitment to work on Tedros’ priorities and their network, which provided sources money, expertise, and credibility.

This is enough to demonstrate that this article is built with a considerable amount of content copied from its sources, which is not permitted under our policies. See Wikipedia:Copy-paste and the linked documents.

I am blanking it, because it must be rewritten from scratch if we are to retain it given the pervasive copying throughout. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 14:24, 15 September 2013 (UTC)

I debowled the article and removed the vast majority of the factual content beyond basic facts. This should really resolve the copyvio content- it is little more than a stub! --Simfan34 (talk) 18:05, 11 October 2013 (UTC)
