resource-innovation-solutions-nigeriaIn an effort to improve sanitation infrastructure in Lagos - the second fastest-growing city in Africa - Nigerian leaders turned to ASU and the City of Phoenix’s Resource Innovation and Solutions Network (RISN). The partnership has resulted in a hub at Sustainability School Lagos called RISN Nigeria, which harnesses the knowledge of academics, practitioners, consultants and students to inform waste management in Lagos.

RISN Nigeria is the first international hub of the Resource Innovation and Solutions Network, a partnership between ASU’s Global Sustainability Solutions Services - a program of the Rob and Melani Walton Sustainability Solutions Initiatives - and the City of Phoenix’s Reimagine Phoenix program. RISN convenes stakeholders from across the world to collaborate, propose real-world projects and grow a global network that solves resource management issues.
