through the orientation of construction and the density of construction; and “greening” of the city, where greening enables the integration of society with nature ( Dagmar et al., 2017 ). Construction density is one of the most important factors and criteria for urban development and regulation planning.

Factors affecting household access to water supply in residential areas in parts of Lagos metropolis, Nigeria

, Nigeria between 1927 and 1960. He argued that there is the absence of both government and native authority in the provision of social services such as water. Gabriel (2005) examines the public–private partnership (PPP) and water-supply provision in urban Africa: a case study of Congo-Brazzaville. The study suggests that to achieve the shift from a supply-driven to a demand-led orientation in water supply, PPPs must take into account the economic and social impacts of diverse consumption patterns, and they must also assess consumers’ needs. Three key elements, namely

Churches, deposed Nikon for his abuses of power, but definitively approved of his reforms. The Russian rite and style of Orthodoxy were decisively condemned by the patriarchs.

Indeed, they decreed that the tsar was godlike as far as his power is concerned and that he was God’s vicar on earth ( Zenkovsky 2009 , 224). The patriarch was put under the Tsar’s authority as regards civil and administrative issues. The Tsar was given the right to depose the
