The aim of this study was to determine the effect of environmental knowledge, conservation and motivation to maintain the environment, as well as to moderate the behaviour of the public in providing family latrines and drainage. Research areas were selected by purposive sampling: 150 respondents were selected by systematic random sampling. The data were analysed using multiple regression. The results showed that knowledge of the environment and conservation, and the motivation to preserve the environment provide a positive influence on the behaviour in the provision of toilet facilities and maintaining appropriate drainage around Lake Tempe in South Sulawesi, Indonesia. © 2015 WIETE.

In this paper, we study a system of differential equations that models the population dynamics of Susceptible, Infected, and Removed (SIR) vector transmission of dengue fever. The model studied re-breeding value based on the number of reported cases of dengue fever in South Sulawesi, Indonesia and Selangor, Malaysia. Using the SIR model and based on the rate of infection of humans, the spread of the dengue virus in both countries reached maximum levels in only a very short time. Theoretical and empirical calculations using the model were found to be suitable, and application of the SIR model showed similarities between the countries. However, the SIR model simulation indicated that dengue fever has not become endemic in either country. Source

Drought characteristics are important in designing the program and measures for drought mitigation and they have been used extensively by various parties in many countries. In Malaysia, the information of drought conditions and identification of drought prone areas is very limited. This study seeked to determine the drought profiles of Peninsular Malaysia using the first order homogeneous Markov chain based on Standardized Precipitation Index (SPI) of one-month time-scale. Monthly readings of rainfall data from 35 monitoring stations in Peninsular Malaysia for the period of 1970–2008 were used in the study. The procedure involved deriving the steady-state probabilities of drought events, the mean residence time for each drought category, the mean recurrence time of drought events and the mean first passage time. Analysis results showed that the longest moderate drought occurred mostly in the northwestern region of Peninsular Malaysia, while severe drought with low duration happened frequently in the middle region. The maximum duration of the severe drought condition is 2 months with majority of the severe drought areas requiring approximately 2 to 3 months to reach a non-drought condition. These results are likely to yield important insight on how to minimise the impacts of severe drought for agriculture and to avoid decadence of the water supply in areas with higher risk of severe drought. Such information would be beneficial to the agriculture planners and water resource management. © 2014, Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht. Source
