Frontier Counties Development Council brings together counties in Kenya's Northern Frontier of Garissa, Isiolo, Lamu, Mandera, Marsabit, Tana River and Wajir. These regions have for a long time been economically marginalized, have suffered fragility, instability, poverty and insecurity.   Amidst all these low indices, the frontier Counties have immense potentials for development.
