Basirat Oyalowo is a senior lecturer/researcher in the Department of Estate Management at the University of Lagos, Nigeria. She consulted on the preparation of the Lagos Resilience Strategy, and thereafter co-produced a community resilience action plan. Her current research focusses on life-cycle financing for neighbourhood resilience. She also manages UNILAG’s Centre for Housing and Sustainable Development.

In this session, our speaker will explore collaborative pathways to anticipating and responding to shocks and stresses that threaten the resilience of real estate and its practice.
