CENTRE FOR HOUSING AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
The Centre for Housing and Sustainable Development (CHSD) at the University of Lagos was established to provide learning and research support for evidence-based policy and practice for the housing sector in Africa. Since inception in December 2013, the Centre has made several achievements in its core areas of research, capacity building in the housing sector, advocacy, regeneration and consultancy.
It is the ARUA Centre for Excellence in Urbanization and Habitable cities, thus coordinating multidisciplinary research activities and capacity building across various urbanization and built environment thematic areas. In partnership with the thirteen ARUA member universities, CHSD provides opportunities for in-depth engagement and solution finding to Africa’s most critical urban issues.
CHSD engages in active collaborations – research and practice – with Federal and State Government Agencies, Non-Governmental Organizations, Real Estate Developers’ Association and Slum community groups.
