Oran enjoys a classic Mediterranean climate marked by summer drought, mild winters, bright and clear skies. During the summer months, rainfall becomes scarce or non-existent. The subtropical anticyclone covered the Oran region for almost four months. On the other hand, the region is well watered during the winter. Low rainfall (420 mm of rain) and its frequency (72.9 days per year) are also characteristic of this climate.
Coastal city of the Mediterranean basin, Oran is a major center of commerce, because it is a metropolis with regional influence due to its port, airport, rail and road infrastructures and a place of choice in terms of investment.
Peri-urban agriculture operates through individual initiatives that result in agricultural diversification : development of crops with high added value, market gardening, arboriculture and ornamentals. The structured interviews conducted with peri-urban farmers helped to explain the factors that are at the origin of these transformations. The profit drawn from the crops grown is linked to the increase in urban demand, agricultural intensification being a response to the precariousness of land engendered by urbanization and by the excessive fragmentation of properties.
The secondary sector (industrial transformation) occupies an essential place in the economic landscape of the wilaya. The petrochemical industry, its energy and plastic derivatives dominate the economic landscape. The presence of hydrocarbons has enabled the development of energy-consuming industries such as the steel industry and that of building materials. Other sectors are well represented: Chemicals, petrochemicals, detergent production, paint, plastics, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, household goods, furniture manufacturing, iron and steel, metallurgy, packaging, agri-food, textiles, leather, construction materials, industrial maintenance, assembly of computer equipment.
