Scope and current activities[edit]

All articles which fall in Category:Southwest Asian countries are within the scope of this WikiProject. We are grateful for our sister WikiProjects, which aim to cover individual nations or other smaller areas within Southwest Asia. Our particular focus is on covering areas which are not within the scope of more specific projects and on coordinating the activities of other Southwest Asia WikiProjects. For example, the activity of WikiProject Qatar has slowed down in the past few months and we are encouraging activity in this area.
