"The Rafik Hariri UN-Habitat Memorial Award celebrates remarkable people in leadership, statesmanship and good governance; in construction and reconstruction of communities and fighting urban poverty."
In September 2004 at the Second Session of the UN-Habitat World Urban Forum in Barcelona, Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri was recognised with the UN-Habitat Scroll of Honour, Special Citation, the highest United Nations award granted for achievements in the field of human settlement. Five months later, at the age of 60, he was assassinated in the heart of his beloved city, Beirut. Twenty-two others were also killed in the bomb attack.
The launch of the Rafik Hariri UN-Habitat Memorial Award took place in March 2010 during the Opening Ceremony of the Fifth World Urban Forum in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
"Eko Atlantic is more than a city. It is a symbol of Nigeria's pride and pivotal in realising the nation's pledge to become a top 20 economic power."
After he put away his front-line flak jacket and helmet, Sadler met the developers and planners of Eko Atlantic City. They asked if he would be interested in telling the story of Africa's largest land reclamation project in Lagos, Nigeria. After so many years reporting news from cities being destroyed during times of war, here was a unique opportunity to be part of a new city that is rising on land once lost to the sea.
Sadler built up a team of communications experts skilled in the fields of film-making, documentaries, television commercials, digital content and more, dedicated to the continuing narrative of Eko Atlantic.
Eko Atlantic is an iconic new coastal city being built adjacent to Victoria Island in Lagos, Nigeria, to solve the chronic shortage of real estate in the world's fastest-growing megacity.
Rising on 10 million square metres of land reclaimed from the ocean and protected by an 8.5 kilometre long sea wall, Eko Atlantic will be the size of Manhattan's skyscraper district. Self-sufficient and sustainable, it will include state-of-the-art urban design, its own power, clean water, advanced telecommunications, spacious roads and 150,000 trees.
The Business District alone covers 700,000 square metres combining residences, restaurants and bars to ensure a cosmopolitan atmosphere. Its spectacular central boulevard is similar in size to the Champs-Élysées in Paris or Fifth Avenue in New York.
The project is entirely privately funded by South Energyx Nigeria Limited – the developers and city planners, a subsidiary of the Nigeria-based Chagoury Group of companies – working in strategic partnership with the Lagos state government and supported by the Nigerian federal government.
