Located in the South-East of Spain, Almería is the most eastern province of the region of Andalucía. With 8.774 km2 and a population of 188.810 inhabitants, it presents a very diverse climate and landscape, from wilderness areas to high mountains areas where the temperatures in winter are really low.It is the capital city of the province of Almeria. The city benefits from a harbor which is a strategic source of economic growth for the society. The intensive history of the region of Andalucía and the different civilizations (Muslims and Catholics specially) that settled in the area, let the city an important historic and cultural heritage.

The Roma population is the most important minority group in the City of Almería. Most of them are settled in one of the districts of the “URBAN” area, where they represent 45% of the total of the population.

The “URBAN” area corresponds to the historical city centre, where at present the Municipality of Almería is implementing an integrated initiative focused on the regeneration of the city centre. The project is funded by the ERDF. One of the priority axes within this project is the integration of socially excluded minority groups.

The challenges that the Roma population face are:

- Low educational attainment, specially among Roma women
- High levels of unemployment among Roma population
- Difficulties in the access to Housing
- Physical and Social exclusion
