dc.description.abstractMombasa County is one of Kenya’s coastal county, with an area of 260km2 between latitudes and longitudes -4.0435, and 39.6682. It borders Kilifi County to the North, Kwale County to the South West and the Indian Ocean to the East. The county lies within the coastal lowland which rises gradually from the sea level in the East to about 132m above sea level (asl) in the mainland. The county has six constituencies namely Changamwe, Jomvu, Nyali, Kisauni, Likoni and Mvita. The population is estimated at 1.2 million and it is projected to rise up to 1.8 million by 2030. The County’s terrain is characterized by three distinct physiographic features, which includes the coastal plain (parts of Changamwe and North Coast and parts of South Coast) consisting of flat land and beach terraces covered with coral limestone, sand deposits and back reefs; the hilly areas in the western part of the county (parts of mainland west) that is 45m to 132m asl; and the Indian Ocean and the shoreline covering parts of the South Coast, the Island, parts of Changamwe and the North Coast. The island is separated from the mainland by two creeks, Port Reitz in the south and Tudor Creek in the north, which are fringed by well-developed mangrove forests. The fringing coral reefs in the North Coast are an important marine conservation area - Mombasa Marine National Park and Reserve.en
