Mauritania hosts over 2,000 urban refugees and asylum seekers and almost 52,000 Malian refugees in Mbera, a camp established in 2012 in the arid south-eastern region close to the Malian border.

Despite the conclusion of a peace agreement in 2015, large-scale returns of Malian refugees are not expected due to persistent violence in northern Mali. In September alone, 471 new arrivals were registered in Mbera.

In Mauritania, UNHCR provides protection and assistance to over 51,000 Malian refugees in the arid south-east region where Mbera refugee camp was established in 2012.

UNHCR protects and assists over 2,000 urban refugees and asylum seekers in the cities of Nouakchott and Nouadhibou, mostly from Central Africa, Syria and Côte d’Ivoire.

Security in northern Mali is still volatile and largescale returns are not expected. Protracted displacement places considerable pressure on the limited local resources.

  • Des cultures pluviales desséchées par les longues et multiples pauses pluviométriques; des superficies irriguées réduites par les difficultés d’accès au crédit agricole ; et un walo à sec faute de crue conduisent à une forte baisse de la production céréales au Trarza, Brakna, Gorgol et Tagant. Dans le reste du pays une production agricole moyenne est probable.

Key Messages

  • Rain-fed crops with long and multiple breaks, reduced irrigated areas due to difficulty in accessing agricultural credit, and a dry walo, lead to a sharp decline in cereal production in Trarza, Gorgol, and Tagant. In the rest of the country average agricultural production is likely.

  • Unfavorable seasonal pastoral conditions in the western pastoral areas have caused an early transhumance which is already reflected in a pastoral overload in the refuge zones of Gorgol, Guidimakha, and southern Assaba and Hodhs.

Local rice and sorghum are the most consumed food products by poor households in Mauritania followed by imported wheat which is a substitute that these households turn to the most. Local rice is grown in the river valley (in the southern regions of Trarza, Brakna, Gorgol and Guidimakha). Sorghum is produced in all areas of production (rainfed) and in flood-recession areas. However, a significant portion is imported from Mali and Senegal. Mauritania depends greatly on food imports (70% in a good agricultural year and 85% in a bad year) than on internal production.

  • Une longue pause pluviométrique qui perdure depuis la fin de la première décade de juillet, a anéanti l’impact positif des pluies précoces de fin juin début juillet sur les cultures et les pâturages du centre et de l’ouest du pays. Cette situation n’affectera cependant le calendrier cultural; habituel qu’en l’absence de pluies utiles pendant la première décade d’aout.
