Independent since November 28th, 1960, Mauritania has a surface of 1,030,700 square kilometres and a population about 2,418,506 inhabitants.
Until the 1970s, Mauritania's coastal regional was practically uninhabited. Now, it is the centre of development in the Saharan country, and the Mauritanian coastline is expected to attract much of the investments of the future. A new management plan for littoral Mauritania is to assure that these developments are environmentally sustainable.
Mauritania, with a population of 2 million, is one of the poorest countries in the world. It has a GDP per capita of about US$ 500. The Sahara desert covers about 77% of the country. Major climatic changes including a marked reduction in rainfall and desertification have seriously affected food security.
