Algeria, near Tindouf, 31 January 2017  In five camps hosting Sahrawi refugees near Tindouf, in the South West of Algeria, WFP is using hydroponic techniques to allow farmers to grow crops using up to 90% less water than traditional agriculture. With this method, plants do not need soil and develop twice as fast as in traditional farming. In hydroponic units – which can be fuelled by solar energy – light, temperature and water supply can be more precisely controlled and monitored. Locally available barley seeds are being planted and the resulting fodder provides much needed fresh food for refugees’ animals. Livestock is the main source of livelihood for up to 90,000 vulnerable refugees – and the quality of their herds’ milk and meat is vastly improving thanks to WFP’s innovative hydroponics.  In the photo: miniature barley fields grow in solar-powered production units in the middle of the Algerian desert thanks to hydroponic techniques.  Photo: WFP/Nina Schroeder

"Now we have fodder in the camps and we still can't believe it," says Maryam. "We have noticed a considerable change in the meat and milk production of our animals. Thanks to this improvement, our food will be better."  Photo: WFP/Nina Schroeder

Algeria, Laayoune, Sahrawi Refugee Camp, 09 February 2016  Algeria has hosted refugees from Western Sahara since 1975 in what has become one of the world’s most protracted refugee crises. The Sahrawi refugees are located in five camps near the town of Tindouf in Western Algeria. The harsh and isolated desert environment limits opportunities for self-reliance and, as a result, the refugees depend on humanitarian assistance for their survival.  WFP has supported the most vulnerable refugees since 1986 with basic food and nutrition needs at the request of the Government of Algeria. In the absence of a political solution, WFP must continue to provide humanitarian food assistance as this is a key factor to peace and stability in the camps. WFP activities aim to improve the food consumption of the most vulnerable refugees, reduce acute malnutrition and anaemia and support the enrolment and retention of refugee children in school. WFP also started the implementation of complementary activities that contribute to the resilience in the camps.

Algeria, Aswerd, Sahrawi Refugee Camp, 30 September 2014  Algeria has hosted refugees from Western Sahara since 1975 in what has become one of the world’s most protracted refugee crises. The Sahrawi refugees are located in five camps near the town of Tindouf in Western Algeria. The harsh and isolated desert environment limits opportunities for self-reliance and, as a result, the refugees depend on humanitarian assistance for their survival.  WFP combines prevention and treatment approaches to address anaemia, stunting and malnutrition among children aged under 5, and pregnant and nursing women, targeting some 22,500 people under its Mother and Child Health programme through 29 health centres. WFP assistance includes the provision of oil, sugar and special fortified foods.
