About our Western Sahara News

Latest news about the Western Sahara, a disputed territory in the Maghreb region of North and West Africa.

Western Sahara, located in Northwest Africa, is a disputed territory known for its complex geopolitical situation. It shares borders with Morocco, Mauritania, and Algeria. Western Sahara's sovereignty is a matter of ongoing dispute between Morocco and the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR), seeking independence for the territory. The United Nations considers it a non-self-governing territory awaiting resolution. Western Sahara is sparsely populated and characterised by the vast expanse of the Sahara Desert. The indigenous Sahrawi people have a rich cultural heritage, deeply connected to the desert environment and nomadic traditions. Western Sahara's economy is predominantly based on fishing, phosphate mining, and some limited agriculture. The region is known for its natural resources, including phosphates and potentially offshore oil reserves. The geopolitical situation surrounding Western Sahara has resulted in complexities, including refugee camps and tensions between the different parties involved. The ongoing efforts for a resolution and self-determination remain at the forefront.
