Welcome to the South Sudan WikiProject, a WikiProject dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of South Sudan. South Sudan became a country on July 9, 2011 at 00:00 local time, and this WikiProject serves to improve Wikipedia's coverage of this new country.

Current Tasks

The biggest projects right now in getting the WikiProject started involve getting any South Sudan items still categorized under Sudan over to the South Sudan category instead. We also have to update the maps with the new division of the countries, and ensure that any existing categories get moved properly as well. When these important tasks are generally completed, further tasks on the individual pages themselves will come to light and we can get the ball rolling on improving articles themselves.
