As a marine and air transportation gateway to East Africa, Kenya is situated in a strategic geographical location, and at USD 4,243 (2019), Kenya leads the regional economy with the highest per capita gross national income (GNI). The country faces problems such as increased population of the poor due to urbanization, worsening unemployment particularly among the youth, and frequent natural disasters in a country where 80 percent of the land is arid or semi-arid. Although the country is more industrialized than in other East African countries, agriculture is still the backbone of the economy, with horticultural crops and tea as the main crops. Agriculture contributes to 20 percent of the GDP and accounts for half of the labor force in Kenya. JICA's support to Kenya is aligned to the Kenya Government's priorities and primarily focused on 1)Economic Infrastructure and Private Sector Development, 2)Agriculture, 3)Environment and Water, 4)Human Resource Development and 5)Health.
