Re: World Water Day 2017 publications by USAID, UN Water, WaterAid and others

Hi Dan,
Could you please add the much improved Wikipedia article on World Water Day? I am so proud of it! It is one of the outcomes from our edit-a-thon which ran from Sunday to Tuesday.
(or make it a separate news item on Sanitation Updates?)

See here:
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Water_Day

It is also mentioned on the main front page of Wikipedia today (in the category "on this day" see middle right):
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page

Check out the click rates for the World Water Day article on Wikipedia here:
tools.wmflabs.org/pageviews/?project=en....ages=World_Water_Day

(10,000 clicks on 21 March 2017)

Who did all the work to get the article into this much improved shape? See the article's history page here:
en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=World...r_Day&action=history
It was mainly Diane, Esther, Ruth and more people from WaterAid, myself, Yafeti, plus Anna Nylander from UN Water who sent additional photos and references to use.

Regards,
Elisabeth

P.S. Wikipedia articles are never perfect. See anything that should be improved? Just tell me or edit it yourself. :-)

P.P.S. The edit-a-thon is officially finished but we are still counting edits of registered people until 31 March, see forum post by Diane here from yesterday:

Hi Elisabeth

Congrats to you and your colleagues on compiling such a useful World Water Day resource.
I included a separate post on Sanitation Updates with a link to the Wikipedia article.
