Assessment the accessibility of poverty distribution to infrastructure and facilities in Perlis Malaysia

Research output: Contribution to journalConference article

Abstract

The poverty eradication program was introduced and planned since 1970 in Malaysia and has successfully reduced the incidence of poverty from 49.3% in 1970 to 8.7% in 1995 and further reduced to 0.4% in 2016. Although the overall figure shows a reduction, the reality of relative poverty and the poverty gap is increasing. There are many of the efforts undertaken by the government are more focused on job opportunities and income of the household. Furthermore, poverty eradication programs that focus on basic needs are difficult to identify the infrastructure and facilities capable of providing maximum service for all levels of society. For example, facilities and infrastructure are more concentrated in the urban areas that make it difficult for poor people to access. This study focuses on infrastructure and facilities such as road access, education and health. In addition, this study will also analyze elements for the distribution of poor households for access to the facilities and infrastructure provided. The study was conducted by using network analysis OD Cost Matrix and Buffer Analysis infrastructure using geospatial data including land use, e-kasih data and facilities and infrastructure offered. The results show that there is a significant relationship between the distribution of poor households and the facilities & infrastructure provided. The findings of this study will provide spatial guiding guidance to the authorities to implement the national transformation of physical development and improvement in the national poverty eradication program so that people can enjoy a better life.
