Projects with unclear impacts on the social, ecological, and economic structure of the city are imposed on inhabitants and business owners. Residents in Lagos are often stunned by the frequent implementation of new programmes, such as the “Cleaner Lagos Initiative” (solid waste management), "Rent-to-Own” (replacement of the housing programme HOMS), or “Lagos Global” (replacement of the Office of Public-Private Partnership to promote investment). Some of these initiatives were stopped before they even started; for instance “EKO-UP”, a slum-upgrading programme to benefit the residents of Amukoko and Bariga. Prestigious and large-scale developments like “Atlantic City” are springing up without delivering answers to simple questions of accessibility and affordability for the masses. This study had a close and rigorous look at the existing laws, instruments, and policies, how they respond to the enormous challenges the city faces in urban development, and how they translate into project implementations. Case studies include the Lekki-Epe Expressway, the Tejuosho Market, and Eko Atlantic City, among others.

All these initiatives and projects have been promoted for the sake of progress, development, and prosperity. The question remains: For whom?

The research for this publication was led by Fabulous Urban, Zurich, with local experts and urban planning as well as urban design students’ examining the relation between urban policies, urban interventions, the role of governance, and the different actors in Lagos.
