Lagos Urban Development Initiative is currently undertaking projects within Lagos centred around Mobility, Technology and Public spaces. Below are our current projects:

As a group, we were able to develop an action plan as well as to reach other stakeholders particularly MDAs in Lagos.

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?

The Handbook for Gender-Inclusive Urban Planning and Design seeks to respond to these urgent contemporary questions.

This event consisted of an exhibition, which took place within the premises of the MoW for three consecutive days, and concluded with a panel discussion.

Past projects:

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. 

Exploring the benefits of promoting human-powered transportation to reverse the course towards more private vehicle use in Lagos.

Exploring the possibilities surrounding smart city concepts applied in the context of Yaba for sustainable management of its culture, economy and transport.

Creative Producers International is a leadership development programme that will enhance the skills and vision of fifteen Creative Producers from around the world.

The Linear Park Project merges non-motorised transportation, urban farming and recreation. It seeks to sustainably connect and conserve wetlands in Lagos.

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.

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.

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.

This project seeks to look at simple and cost-neutral measures and regulations which the local community can easily introduce to make roads safer. 

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. 

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 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.
