Humanitarian situation and needs

Key messages

  • 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.

  • Refugees living in five camps have little access to outside resources and international aid continues to be necessary to their survival.
