Abstract

Agricultural extension, community education and social development are three important areas to improve productivity and income for a better living. Meanwhile, the development of new and sustainable energy sources has become exciting challenges facing researchers, scientists and/or policy makers involved in developing renewable energy technologies, especially for rural area. This paper highlights an initial study of a potential for productivity and social aspects from the development of micro-hydro system for rural electrification in Malaysia. In this paper, the potential of productivity and social aspects are presented in three development issues: human and education, agricultural and productivity, as well as its impacts on sustainable developments. This study also offers some recommendations for further research with the aim of finding more solutions to improve the facilities and enhance the productivity of orang asli (aboriginal people) in Kampong Tuel, Gua Musang, Malaysia. The methods involved in this study were consisting of site visits, systems inspection, interviews and discussions with the people in community.
