About Ronald Chagoury

Ronald Chagoury Jr. is the Vice Chairman of South Energyx Nigeria Limited currently working on Eko Atlantic. The project consists of the construction and development of a high-tech, environmentally friendly city in Lagos, Nigeria. Ronald Chagoury has been actively involved in the Eko Atlantic project since the start of land reclamation in 2008.

Eko Atlantic has been a fulfilling opportunity for Ronald Chagoury, as it has allowed him to learn more about urbanism, construction, real estate development, green technology, environmentalism, and sustainability.

Green Technology




Ronald Chagoury has been interested in the development of green technology and sustainable infrastructure since his early days at ECE Paris, where he earned a Master’s degree in Engineering.

After University, he got very involved with a aquaponics/hydroponic farm project, sparking his interest in the future of environmentally friendly farming. Ronald was also very involved in low income, environmentally friendly housing projects in Nigeria. These are two sectors that he is passionate about.

One of the top priority for Eko Atlantic has been to transform the city into a hub for the fast-growing middle class. Ronald Chagoury is a keen believer in the construction of cost competitive, modern, efficient apartments.

One way of achieving this is through the construction of small, modern apartments that compensate for space constraints with great shared spaces and amenities, helping to make living on Eko Atlantic very enjoyable, and at the same time, more affordable.

As the Vice Chairman of South Energyx Nigeria Limited, Chagoury Jr. has been involved in many areas of Eko Atlantic, from developing early stages of the project to promoting the concept and development of the project at both the regional and international levels. The company has already reclaimed over 5 million square meters of prime real estate to date.

Eko Atlantic is committed to satisfying the needs for financial, commercial, residential, and tourist accommodations through the development of this state-of-the-art infrastructure. Ronald Chagoury and the team are now focused on the development of high- end commercial and residential towers, shopping mall, hospitals, schools, water and sewage treatment facilities, fiber optics and much more.

Ronald Chagoury Jr hopes that the Eko Atlantic project can serve as the new standard for environmentally-friendly and sustainable cities around the world. Through the implementation of environmental techniques and construction of sustainable infrastructure, Eko Atlantic will help to define the city of Lagos in becoming the financial center of the region.

Even more concerning, the desert is advancing at an alarming pace, creeping into land that is vital for the people who live in bordering nations. Driven by drought, climate change, and unsustainable practices like overgrazing, desertification is fast becoming a global problem. Luckily, the Sahara is also a source of hope.

You Should Be Urban Farming Already! Here’s Why

No matter who you are or where and how you live, the food you eat plays a huge role in your daily life and happiness. Rapid global urbanization and the industrialization of agriculture mean that people everywhere are becoming more and more disconnected from the source of the food that sustains them. Why are so many rebelling against this trend by growing their own crops right in their city homes on balconies, backyards, rooftops, and roadsides? The reasons are many, and the benefits are spread across all spheres of life.

The Future of Nigerian Housing is Green

Nigeria currently faces a dire housing crisis.

The solution may well lie with technological developments in ecologically sustainable housing. Bridging the housing gap represents a $300 billion potential market opportunity, and sustainable technologies could make that opportunity a reality and benefit both the environment and working Nigerian citizens.
