In December, the ICED facility hosted a number of Quarterly Lessons Learnt (QLL) sessions. This quarter we shared learnings and hosted discussion from Urban Research Nigeria. Attached are slides from the session.

What makes an effective city in a challenging environment?

Nigeria has a long history of urbanisation and urban development that distinguishes it from other sub-Saharan African countries, and influences the trajectory of its contemporary urban transition.

Urbanisation Research Nigeria (URN) is a four year (2013-17) urban research programme funded by DFID that delivers research on urbanisation, urban development and the provision of infrastructure. Findings are intended to contribute to the knowledge and evidence base for better urbanisation strategy, urban policy, and urban programming and management in Nigeria.
