Humanitarian situation and needs
The Sahrawi refugees are the result of an unresolved political conflict with humanitarian consequences, which have to be addressed in line with the humanitarian principles of neutrality and impartiality.
The Sahrawi refugee situation is defined as a forgotten crisis by the European Commission, meaning that it receives little funding from the international community.

More resources and fresh policies needed to get children into school
BEIRUT, Lebanon, 15 April 2015 – Despite impressive progress in raising school enrolment over the past decade, one in every four children and young adolescents (more than 21 million) in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) are either out of school or at risk of dropping out.
Le droit à l’éducation est un droit pour lequel l’Algérie a déployé beaucoup d’efforts au fil des années. Le budget de l’éducation a été multiplié par dix depuis 1990 permettant une éducation gratuite à plus de 8 millions d’élèves répartis à travers prés de 23 000 établissements scolaires pour les cycles primaire et moyen.
The last decade has seen an increase in enrolment, a decrease in disparity and rising levels of government funding for education. Of particular note, pre-primary enrolment rates have dropped dramatically. Despite this, far too many children drop out of lower secondary education.
In the last decade, the countries of the Middle East and North Africa have invested considerable resources and political capital to bring more children into the classroom.
Most impressively, out-of-school rates for primary school children have plummeted, often by as much as half, bringing hope and new opportunity to millions.
1 Strategic Response Plans in the MENA region received US$ 2.1 billion. The largest recipient was Syria, with US$ 1.08 billion, followed by Iraq with US$ 851.6 million. In total, the appeals and SRPs are 32.9% funded with a 67.1% shortfall.
2 The Syrian Humanitarian Response Plan (SHARP) and the Regional Refugee and Resilience Plan (3RP) jointly requested US$ 6.79 billion. The total amount received is US$ 1.18 billion (17.3%), which leaves a total shortfall of US$ 5.62 billion (82.7%).
