This category is for geographical articles related to West Africa - that is, the countries shown in dark green on the map to the right. You can help Wikipedia by expanding them.

To add an article to this category, use {{AfricaW-geo-stub}} instead of {{Africa-geo-stub}}, {{geo-stub}}, or {{stub}}.

These countries are:

  • Benin - this has its own subcategory - use {{Benin-geo-stub}}
  • Burkina Faso - this has its own subcategory - use {{BurkinaFaso-geo-stub}}
  • Cape Verde - this has its own subcategory - use {{CapeVerde-geo-stub}}
  • Côte d'Ivoire - this has its own subcategory - use {{Côted'Ivoire-geo-stub}} (this country is also known as the Ivory Coast)
  • The Gambia - this has its own subcategory - use {{Gambia-geo-stub}}
  • Ghana - this has its own subcategory - use {{Ghana-geo-stub}}
  • Guinea - this has its own subcategory - use {{Guinea-geo-stub}}

(note: Stubs relating to the Azores and Madeira use {{Azores-geo-stub}} and {{Madeira-geo-stub}} respectively - these are housed in subcategories of Category: Portugal geography stubs; similarly, {{CanaryIslands-geo-stub}} is used for the Canary Islands and its stubs are in a subcategory of Category:Spain geography stubs)

Note: As of September 2005, a decision was made to recategorize four countries that Wikipedia had been considering to be primarily West African and occasionally Central African as primarily Central African. The map above has not yet been changed to reflect this decision. These countries are:

  • Cameroon - this has its own subcategory - use {{Cameroon-geo-stub}}
  • Equatorial Guinea - this has its own subcategory - use {{EquatorialGuinea-geo-stub}}
  • Gabon - this has its own subcategory - use {{Gabon-geo-stub}}
  • Republic of the Congo (Congo-Brazzaville)- this has its own its own subcategory - use {{RCongo-geo-stub}}
  • São Tomé and Príncipe - this has its own subcategory - use {{SaoTomePrincipe-geo-stub}}
Update: This decision was related to Wikipedia generally applying the United Nations subdivisions of the world, and the UN implemented a new standard in 2005. If this change is to be implemented completely on Wikipedia, the following the following changes will take place affecting this category:

The following category will be moved here:

  • Mauritania: {{Mauritania-geo-stub}} (from North Africa)

The following categories will be moved elsewhere:

  • Cameroon: {{Cameroon-geo-stub}} (to Central Africa)
