Who we are

The Lake Region is one of the most densely populated regions of Kenya with over 14 million people which constitute about 30% of the population in Kenya.

The Lake Region Economic Bloc presents the socioeconomic aspirations of 14 counties in the Lake Basin Region and seeks to boldly secure and shape the region’s destiny. The Economic Blueprint is designed to guide development efforts by leveraging existing assets,addressing constraints and defining key steps that leaders and citizens of the region can take to transform the shared vision of prosperity into reality.


The counties that constitute the Lake Region Economic Bloc in this are Bungoma, Busia, Homa Bay, Kakamega,Kisii, Kisumu, Migori, Nyamira, Siaya,Trans Nzoia, Kericho,Bomet, Nandi 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.

Thus a partnership between the counties is both essential and timely and creates a practical framework through which county government efforts can be pooled to harness the abundant natural resources, build on existing strengths and address challenges.
