Olusola Adeoye holds a Master’s degree in Peace and Conflict Studies from University of Ibadan Nigeria. He is the Head of Redesigning Lagos Lagoon Project with Nature Cares Resource Centre, Lagos Nigeria. The multi-stakeholders and multi-sites project takes a participatory historical perspective to assess socio-ecological changes and decline of vital wetland resources. Prior to this Project, he was part of a team of transdisciplinary researchers funded by DAAD to examine problems of urban water supply in developing countries. As a bilingual environmental social scientist, Olusola’s expertise in environmental conflicts, policy analysis, process design and facilitation of participatory engagement processes qualifies as a competent partner for this project.
