Welcome to the WikiProject Niger! This group was formed to better organize articles on Niger in a spirit of cooperation.


This group includes within its scope all articles related to Niger, its cities, geography, transportation, culture, history and so on. It aims to expand Wikipedia's resources on Niger in a fair and accurate manner. All of these articles should be contained within the Category:Niger or one of its subcategories.

Open tasks[edit]

Have a request?[edit]

Found a Niger related topic which needs an article, and which you'd like other editors to work on? Go to the talk page, or add it to Wikipedia:WikiProject_Niger/List of_missing_Niger topics/.


Please add Niger-related articles by modifying or adding the WikiProject Africa tag, like so:

|Niger-importance= Low/Mid/High/Top

Note that these tags are case sensitive. Please see {{AfricaProject}} for more information on the template, as well as assessment information.

Needing photos[edit]

Mali articles needing photos may be tagged with {{reqphoto|in=Niger}}. Those tagged need photos can be found at : Category:Wikipedia_requested_photographs_in_Niger

Currently Needing work[edit]

If you're working on an article and you'd like to bring it to the attention of other editors, list it here, and/or discuss it at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Niger. There should be no more than 20 articles listed at one time. Put the newest at the top and delete from the bottom when the total is over 20.

Format: # [[Article title]], class. Details on what should be done (optional). ~~~~

  1. Mdou Moctar - just started this page - could do with some more input. Haminoon (talk) 07:55, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
  2. Dr. Blofeld began adding commune stubs recently. Here's a Commune Wishlist of communes of Niger that are either capitals of Department or other notable rural communes, already redlinked in articles. T L Miles (talk) 01:49, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
  3. Wikipedia 0.7 articles selected for Niger: These need to be cleaned up and stable versions tagged. See Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Niger for details. Hausa people also needs to be tagged as a Niger article for this. While many other could be suggested, this is due to be locked up by 20 October 2008, and so improving these selected articles will be work enough. I'll focus on expansion of Niamey, and tightening up Niger, Niger River and Tandja_Mamadou T L Miles (talk) 03:05, 16 September 2008 (UTC)
  4. Niger, of course, should be the highest priority. The article is poor, mostly lifted from the US State Department. I'm trying to work on History of Niger and then integrate it in, but PLEASE dip in to the main article or any breakout articles at any time. I've requested semi-protection for the article, as most of my time spent on it is removing racist vandalism. T L Miles (talk) 15:25, 29 January 2008 (UTC)
  5. Second Tuareg Rebellion, start. Current event: help it stay current and NPOV. T L Miles (talk) 19:47, 25 January 2008 (UTC)
