Projects Lagos Urban Development Initiative is currently undertaking projects within Lagos centred around Mobility, Technology and Public spaces. Below are our current projects: LINEAR PARK PROJECT The Linear Park Project merges non-motorised transportation, urban farming and recreation. It seeks to sustainably connect and conserve wetlands in Lagos. WETLANDS CAMPAIGN PROJECT The wetlands are disappearing at an alarming rate and this will have devastating effects on Lagos State. We can expect flooding, loss of biodiversity and increased risk of infectious diseases. VALUATION OF PUBLIC SPACE This research aims to create an assessment matrix that can be used both by the public and private sector to assess public projects including parks and pedestrian infrastructure. URBAN VERTICAL FARMING The pilot on urban vertical farming is a drive that responds to an impending food crisis, as climate change threatens to undermine the global food systems. WALKABILITY AND BIKEABILITY This project seeks to look at simple and cost-neutral measures and regulations which the local community can easily introduce to make roads safer. CARGO BIKES FEASIBILITY STUDY This project is aimed at carrying out a feasibility study on the use of cargo bikes for delivery purposes by the commercial and informal sector on Lagos Island. GIRL BIKE CLUB LAGOS ISLAND We plan to teach multiple cycles of up to 15 girls cycling, empowerment, rights of young girls and self-defence in a specific Lagos Island community. THE LUDI LIBRARY The LUDI Library is an initiative that responds to the lack of centralized information sources on the peculiar rate, style and trend of design and urbanization on the African Continent. A GENDERED PERSPECTIVE How can we create environments in Lagos that are safe and inclusive? Can we design a city from a female perspective and share the findings? LOCAL GOV. DESIGN GUIDE The Lagos Design Guide is a project that responds to the lack of quick references to laws, policies and strategies on planning and design at the Local Government level. Past projects: ALLOTMENT GARDENS FRAMEWORK DEVELOPMENT Develop a framework guiding the allocation of land under LASPARK for horticulture nurseries, community gardens and farms similar to the allotment garden concept (Kleingartenanlagen) in Germany. SMART YABA Exploring the possibilities surrounding smart city concepts applied in the context of Yaba for sustainable management of its culture, economy and transport. THE MOVE TO NON-MOTORIZED TRANSPORT Exploring the benefits of promoting human-powered transportation to reverse the course towards more private vehicle use in Lagos. PRODUCING THE FUTURE Creative Producers International is a leadership development programme that will enhance the skills and vision of fifteen Creative Producers from around the world.
