Abstract

Kebanyakan negara di Asia Tenggara adalah negara sedang membangun yang mengalami masalah petempatan. Walaupun kerajaan negara tersebut telah berusaha untuk menyelesaikan masalah petempatan, namun masalah perumahan, perkhidmatan bandar dan infrastruktur masih menjadi masalah besar dan memerlukan tindakan dan penyelesaian yang baik. Pendekatan pembangunan baru menggunakan kerjasama daripada pelbagai pihak ke arah mencapai petempatan mapan, yang melibatkan baik pulih fizikal dan pembangunan kapasiti komuniti. Dalam usaha ini, pendekatan sektor swasta menggunakan saluran tanggungjawab korporat sosial (CSR) melalui kerjasama dengan sektor kesukarelawan sebagai kaedah untuk menyampai, mempermudah dan menambah baik pembangunan petempatan. Pendekatan ini memberi ruang kepada penggunaan sumber yang pelbagai dan saling menyokong dalam pembangunan petempatan. Kerjasama melalui CSR boleh memberi manfaat kepada pelbagai pihak, termasuk masyarakat tempatan, syarikat dan organisasi kesukarelawan. Walaupun kerjasama antara sektor swasta dan kesukarelawan adalah penting, namun data sekunder menunjukkan bahawa kerjasama ini masih tidak popular di wilayah Asia Tenggara dan kajian lepas tentang topik ini juga kurang. The Southeast Asian region, which mainly consists of developing countries, is one of the world’s regions suffering from poor human settlements. Despite the efforts by the public sector to solve these problems, they persist which require more actions and better solutions. New development approaches drawing more actors’ efforts through partnership are sought to promote sustainable human settlements, which include physical upgrading and community capacity building. Private sector involvement through corporate social responsibility (CSR), and the use of voluntary and private sector partnership as a tool to deliver, facilitate and improve the CSR are believed to be the new development approach. These enable diverse, complementary and more resources to be drawn together to give supports to human settlement development. The adoption of the CSR through partnership can bring benefits to all parties, including the served communities and the involved corporations and voluntary organizations (VOs). Although the development of the partnership is important and provides potential benefits, reviews based on secondary data show that it is still not popular in most Southeast Asian countries. Previous research on this topic is also scarce.
