  13. 13. Urban Renewal in Lagos State LAGOS STATE URBAN RENEWAL AUTHORITY (LASURA) a parastatal of the Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development came into existence in 1991 by Edict No 7 of 1991. It was restructured to reposition it in 2005 vide Gazette No 25, Vol. 38 of 14th October 2005. Prof. T.G Nubi
  14. 14. Statutory Responsibilities Implementation of all State Government policies and programme on urban Renewal Continuous identification and study of areas due for urban renewal Drawing up of schemes for Renewal Programmes Directing and monitoring of all resettlement schemes whenever necessary i.e. where redevelopment programmes are involved The monitoring, coordination and implementation of Renewal Schemes involving other Government Agencies such as the Local Government in areas of Drains, Health, Market, Shops, recreation facilities etc. within scheme(s) Prof. T.G Nubi
  15. 15. CHALLENGES Study conducted by Lagos state Government in collaboration with UNDP in 1983 identified 42 blighted communities in Lagos Metropolitan Area Between 1995 to 2006, LASURA was unable to undertake identification and mapping of additional slum communities which have doubled the initially identified number. Complex land tenure system and fragmentation of estates complicated property inheritance and customary laws are major problems to slum upgrading The staffing structure of LASU is presently weighted towards Town Planners. For an organization dealing with slum upgrading/redevelopment, it is essential that the Authority has among her team of personnel sociologists and economists. Additional Architects, engineers, Urban Design Specialist, GIS experts, Urban Managers, Demographers, Statisticians, Land and Quantity Surveyors Prof. T.G Nubi
  16. 16. Challenges Contd! The budgetary allocation to LASURA from the State Government was before January 2008 considered too meager to effectively deal with slum upgrading ($56,410/annum) within the last five years. Low income and high rate of poverty make the economic sustenance of the infrastructural facilities provided a big challenge. Human Challenges: there cannot be urban renewal without human renewal. The psychological lifestyle is another challenge the above is always related to. I. Knowledge base ii. Attitude and iii. Existing practices. Political Challenges: issues of political will and political maneuvers. Prof. T.G Nubi

  30. 30. Housing and Urban Regeneration.Housing plays a key role in urban renewal and local regeneration: Decent, homes contribute to social cohesion, improved health and better use of fossil fuels and other resources. The Government should aim to offer everyone the opportunity of a decent home. A systematic approach of integrating services with housing in order to help low income people achieve housing stability. These services should focus on permanent affordable housing that incorporates various levels of services with housing, with services provided preferably by trained staff for whom service delivery, not property management is their primary responsibility. Programs and Services such as: education, health and social care, transportation, eradication of poverty, employment/training, community care etc Prof. T.G Nubi
  31. 31. Urban Regeneration:Principles for Design & ImplementationBased on historical knowledge of linking housing with services:Housing is a basic human need and all people have a right to safe, decent,affordable and permanent housing.All people are valuable, and capable of being valuable residents andvaluable community members.Housing and services should be integrated to enhance the social andeconomic well-being of residents and to build healthy communities.Residents, owners, property managers and service providers should workas a team in integrated housing and services initiatives.Programs should be based on assessment of residents and communitystrengths and needs supported by ongoing monitoring and evaluation Prof. T.G Nubi
  32. 32. Principles – contd! Programs should strengthen and expand resident participation to improve the community’s capacity to create change. Residents participation in programs should be voluntary, with an emphasis on outreach to the most vulnerable. Community development activities should be extended to the neighbouring area and residents. Assessment, intervention and evaluation should be multilevel, focusing on individual residents, groups, and the community. Services should maximise the use of existing resources, avoid duplication, and expand the economic, social, and political resources available to residents. Residents of Housing Plus Services program should be integrated into the larger community.

  44. 44. Public-Private Partnership: A regenerationfinancing optionA Public Private Partnership (PPP) is a partnership betweenthe public and private sector for the purpose of deliveringa project or service, which was traditionally provided bythe public sector. The PPP process recognises that boththe public sector and the private sector have certainadvantages, relative to the other, in the performance ofspecific tasks. Private sector innovation, technological,financial and management expertise are but some of theattributes, which the private sector can contribute.Through a partnership arrangement, the public andprivate sector can combine to provide quality publicservices and infrastructure in the most economicallyefficient manner. Prof. T.G Nubi
  45. 45. Public-Private PartnershipThe public sector would concentrate on investment in: Infrastructures Environmental improvements New roads and public transports Services and drainages etcThe private sector would concentrate on: Building new infrastructures and mega structures Imaginative use of existing lands, waterways Providing development of international quality Finance and equity for development Prof. T.G Nubi
  46. 46. Types of Public-Private Partnership (PPP) The Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) principles of financing projects arises when an individual, institution, country or any other entity conceives project or has need for certain facilities but lacks the fund to undertake development of the project. Individual or institutional investors with invest-able funds could be brought in to inject the needed funds to actualize the development of the project. After the development, the investor operates it for an agreed concession period in order to recoup his investment and at the expiration of the period the un-exhausted development is transferred back to the portfolio of the partner with superior rights/interests. Build – Own – Transfer (BOT) Build – Own – Operate (BOO) Design – Build – Operate – Transfer (DBOT) NOTE: For each available delivery methods, substantial knowledge, experience and judgment are required for success.
