2. Land Use Dynamics and Governance in the Sungai Selangor Watershed

Land Use

Pengarang   : Jamilah Mohammad & Goh Hong Ching             

Imprint          : Kuala Lumpur: Universiti Malaya Press, 2015 

Mukasurat    : 169   


Watersheds have been widely recognized as the best scale at which to govern water. At the geographic scale of the watersheds, stakeholders can make decisions on how to manage water resources in a setting more conducive to participation, through coordinated development and management of water, land, and related resources, economic and social welfare can be optimized without compromising sustainability of vital environmental systems. Sungai Selangor is an important water resource for the state of Selangor. It is the major contributor in meeting water demand to the Selangor State and Kuala Lumpur. Since early days, Sungai Selangor has played a central role in the development of settlements in northern Selangor.

The research described here is an attempt to understand the development forces operating in the Sungai Selangor watershed. The approach taken is intentionally multi-disciplinary, as it attempts to paint a broad-brush picture of the current situation within the Sungai Selangor watershed. Increasing pressures on land development is a major factor that causes land use conflicts in the watershed. Spatial-environmental governance should improve collaboration and connections between citizens and decision-makers at the watershed scale. Many issues within the economic, social, or environmental realm necessitate an understanding of the spatial context within which such forces operate.

The book is organized in ten chapters, each chapter being devoted towards addressing specific issues considered prevalent or outstanding within the community living within the watershed. Although the book has been written in an academic manner, it should also appeal to the public and students in higher education institutions as it relates to topical issues. Beginner researchers may find that the discussion of various issues within a location-specific context might spark off their own research on aspects that appeal to their own area of expertise.

3. Cases on People Readiness for Information Systems in the Construction Sector

 Cases on People

Pengarang   : Hafez Salleh & Nur Mardhiyah Aziz           

Imprint          : Kuala Lumpur: Penerbit Universiti Malaya, 2018 

Mukasurat    : 111     

Sinopsis :

The emergence of information systems (IS) has changed traditional work processes in many industries, including the construction industry. The perceived benefits of IS reported by researchers have motivated many construction organisations to adopt IS in their work processes.

However, many reports indicate that IS investments failed to meet the anticipated objectives, exceeded budget, and were completed behind schedule. Findings from the literature show that the poor rate of success in implementing IS in the construction industry is due to the failure to address people issues within the organisation.

People issues are clearly significant, yet neglected and need to be considered for successful IS implementation. Thus, to measure people readiness or capabilities of an organisation prior to implementation of IS is extremely important to ensure its successful application.

Five real cases in construction organisations presented in this book will help managers identify the improvements needed to successfully implement IT/IS.

Pengarang   : Sani Habibu, Bakri Ibn Ishak & Abdul-Hadi Bin Nawawi           

Imprint           : Germany: LAP Lambert Academic Publishing, 2017 

Mukasurat    : 146  

Sinopsis :

Malaysia Constitution is structured in such a manner to allow state Governments make laws and legislation to suite their local circumstances in line with parent Acts on those areas covered in the concurrent list. This intention is not intended to create operational dichotomy and disharmony within local authority councils regardless of their state. It is equally not the intention of the Act to create inequality and unfairness among citizens through differential tax charges and treatments, yet the act provided for adoption of annual and capital value bases of assessment at varying percentages and at the discretion of state provided it falls within 1-35% of annual value and 1-5% of capital value. This have resulted in varying rate liabilities among comparable properties enjoying the same public services at different states and local government thus creating inequality and no uniformity among rate payers thereby falling short of taxation principle.
