With borders to the Indian Ocean, Kenya hosts a rich diversity of natural abundance as well of ethnicities, with an estimated 42 communities. The country has made enormous economic and social developmental strides over the past two decades including reduced child mortality, near-universal primary school enrolment, and increased spending on healthcare, which includes free maternal healthcare at government facilities.

The resulting reduction in neonatal and young child mortality has resulted in a rapid population growth from 2.9-million to more than 49-million over the past decade, with almost three quarters of the population under 30 years old.

However, poverty and inequality remain key developmental challenges in Kenya, and people in the rural areas are still heavily reliant on the natural habitat inhabited by elephants and other wildlife, putting humans and wildlife at loggerheads.
