Algeria is the African continent's biggest country, and the world's tenth largest country. The Sahara desert covers more than four-fifths of the land. 

Algeria is having to navigate a recession within the constraints of strict lockdown measures, introduced to contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus, and a significant fall in the price and volume of international hydrocarbon exports in the first half of 2020. While the lockdown has helped reduce the spread of the virus, labour-intensive sectors—including services and construction, which remain largely inside the informal economy—have been deeply affected, resulting in many jobs being lost on a temporary or permanent basis, and many more jobs placed at risk (World Bank, 2020).
