The review is the first activity during the inception period of the Urbanisation Research Nigeria programme. The existing sources on urbanisation – as situated within the themes of urban change, economic growth, well-being and planning – were collated from government, academia, development partners, other international agencies, community organisations and the private sector. The review is thus based on extensive review of secondary sources, supported by expert views and data gathered from key informants. This is complemented with an assessment of existing data sources for urbanisation research, and a discussion of their suitability for tackling questions in each of the four themes.
