Yes I can add. I just need some help from my colleagues on how to add on wikipedia and will get back if there is problem.

Open license is fine. I am sure Dorothy and Laura will add the required signoff.

Hi Depinder,
Do you have colleagues who have edited Wikipedia before? If so, great! If not, then you could take a look at this page which I recently set up when I ran an online edit-a-thon for novice editors:
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meetup/O...ange_-_November_2020

If you scroll down a little you get to Section 7 which contains this and should tell you everything you need:

7 Help...! I have never edited Wikipedia before!
7.1 How to get started with Wikipedia
7.2 How to get started with this edit-a-thon

If you get stuck, just put your questions into this thread (so that others can learn, too) or e-mail me.

Regards,
Elisabeth

If you already have suitable images, or you are feeling creative and have an idea for an image please share the images/drafts/your ideas with us here in this Forum thread or to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Re: Contribute to the new SuSanA Factsheet on Capacity Development - final commenting round open for one week!

Dear Elisabeth and Depinder,

thank you for your ongoing discussion on the fact sheet and the integration of (its) content on Wikipedia.

Elisabeth, coming back to your  comment  regarding the length of the Fact Sheet as well as the formatting: 
I agree with Depinder and his argumentation that capacity development is a very generic term, covering several fields, wherefore I would consider its length appropriate and still call it a Fact Sheet. As we have closed the final commenting round, we will stay with the lenght of the document as no cuts were propoesed. And yes, we will apply the same formatting we used for previous Fact Sheets, including the two columns per page. To be on the safe site, I will check with Dorothee and Laura on the licensing, as you mentioned in  this post . But I am confident, that they already had this in mind.

Best regards,
Finn
