Kenya Kisumu Urban Profile
Abstract

Kisumu is Kenya's third largest city and is located in the Western Highlands on Lake Victoria. Kisumu's status as a stronghold of the opposition has negatively impacted its development, as the area was largely neglected until the emergence of multi party democracy in Kenya.

Despite its rich resource base, Kisumu is one of the poorest cities in Kenya and food insecurity, growing urban poverty and the high prevalence of HIV/AIDS are key concerns.
