Algeria: drought continues, crops at risk

11 November, 14:32

    (ANSAmed) - TUNIS, NOVEMBER 11 - Algerian farmers are worried that an ongoing drought could continue, seriously damaging the whole agricultural sector. National authorities and the minister for agriculture and rural development, Abdelwahab Nouri, are monitoring the situation.

    Several areas of the country have had no rain for months and many crops, especially traditional ones, are on the line.

    The situation will improve only after a network of artificial lagoons will be built to bring water to areas at high risk of desertification. (ANSAmed)
