Country Report: Algeria (2011)

Document

Description

Algeria is a vast country covering an area of more than 2,380,000 km2. Its population currently stands at 35 million people spread unevenly across the country. The highest concentration is in the Northern Region which represents only 4% of the total area (less than 100,000 km2) and is home to over 65% of the total population, a density close to 300 inhabitants per km2. This spatial distribution of the population and the high urbanization rate (~65%) has generated great pressure on the environment, particularly in the management of municipal solid waste.
