The Lake Region is one of the most densely populated
regions of Kenya with over 10 million people which
constitute about 25% of the population in Kenya.
The counties that constitute the Lake Region are Bungoma, Busia, Homa Bay, Kakamega, Kisii, Kisumu, Migori, Bomet, Nyamira, Siaya and Vihiga. They not only have similar ecological zones and natural
resources, they have analogous cultural histories that
date back to historical migrations and trading routes.
