Video as an instrument to conduct participatory well-being assessment within informal settlements in Lagos


In Lagos, Nigeria, an estimated two-thirds of the city’s population live in informal settlements, where a lack of security of tenure means that residents live in constant fear of eviction. 

Within this context, the Development Planning Unit (DPU) at UCL, in collaboration with Lagos-based NGO, Justice & Empowerment Initiatives (JEI), are utilising participatory video as an instrument to conduct a participatory well-being assessment of the living conditions within an informal settlement in Lagos to explore how the research process and outputs can strengthen the urban poor’s ability to influence policy and decision-making processes.
