“Challenge” Neighborhood – Ibadan

Ibadan: Challenge, a key gateway to the city and a bustling commercial area that has many informal and formal markets, is undergoing urban renewal with many new projects, which have consequently exacerbated spatial inequalities while also turning Challenge into a site of resistance. This neighbourhood provides an opportunity to understand how poor working women move in and out of ‘wealth’ as they negotiate the volatile economy and government attempts to displace the urban poor.
