Of the many advantages of working from home what stands out is the savings (in time, stress and money) from commuting, according to a survey we conducted recently on lessons from the lockdown.

A major highlight from this study is that Lagosians want to work from home, at least occasionally. Despite the challenges, there are advantages as this article shows.

The likelihood that you are reading this email in traffic is quite high. We spend most of our time in Lagos either in traffic or avoiding it. Time spent in traffic has a value in naira: extra transport or fuel cost. And this is just the cost to individuals. How about organisations and the megacity itself?   

What traffic congestion cost Lagos commuters

In this article which is based on our yet to be published report on connectivity and productivity, we take a snapshot of the cost of traffic congestion.

Traffic congestion is a problem of demand and supply: too many vehicles on too few roads. 

Though gridlocks may indicate economic growth within a particular location, beyond a certain threshold, however, the associated costs – increased transport costs, reduced welfare of commuters, and lower productivity levels of employees – could disrupt and ultimately, lead to a slowdown of business activities.

At Danne Institute for Research we are intentional about the transformational change we want to create. We conduct research (build research capabilities among African scholars in the process) and disseminate our research findings to bring about sustainable change in Africa.

Our plan is to keep you updated on our research and draw your attention to some of their highlights through articles which you can find on our website.
