Abstract: This study assesses the professional perspective of urban informality and infrastructure planning in Hong Kong and Lagos metropolis so as to develop a strategy for sustainable urban development and ameliorate the challenges of urban informal settlement and infrastructure planning globally. The study adopts case study methodology with the qualitative method of data collection and mixed method of data analysis through reconnaissance survey, participant observation and the interview of environmental professionals. The data were analyzed through the theme description and descriptive statistics such as tables, pictures, images and the reported statements of the interviewee. The findings of this study reflect that urban informal settlement and infrastructure challenges exist and it’s associated with several other factors. Also, inadequate infrastructure is described to affects the condition of living in Lagos metropolis, but such cannot be stated in Hong Kong, as the proliferation of poor condition of living is more of a system and governance than infrastructure development.
