Analysis of Community Behavior Maintaining the Settlement Environment in the River Flow Area (Das) Mamasa Upstream Section

This research aims to: (1) to know the behavior of the community in maintaining the residential environment in the upstream Mamasa watershed (DAS), (2) to determine ecosystem knowledge, environmental knowledge, motivation, and attitudes towards the community's environment in the upstream Mamasa watershed, (3) to determine the effect of ecosystem knowledge, environmental knowledge, motivation, and attitudes towards the environment individually and collectively on the behavior of the community in maintaining the residential environment in the upstream Mamasa watershed. This type of research is quantitative correlational. The research location is in the upstream Mamasa watershed. Research population is the community (head of family) who live in the upstream Mamasa watershed. Respondents as many as 50 heads of families were selected using the Systematic Random Sampling method. The research variables consist of: (1) independent variable (X), and (2) dependent variable (Y). The dependent variable is the behavior of the community in protecting the residential environment in the upstream Mamasa watershed (Y). The independent variable (X) consists of: (a) ecosystem knowledge (X1); (b) environmental knowledge, (X2); (c) motivation to maintain the housing environment (X3), and (d) attitude towards the housing environment (X4). Data analysis techniques used: (1) descriptive statistical analysis, to describe the average, maximum, minimum, standard deviation, frequency distribution, and histogram values of each variable, and (2) inferential statistical analysis is used to test the hypothesis. The analysis model used is simple regression analysis and multiple regression. The results showed that: (1) Behavior of the community to care for the environment in the upstream Mamasa watershed was low, (2) knowledge of ecosystems, environmental knowledge, motivation, and attitudes towards the community's environment in the upstream Mamasa watershed was low, (3) knowledge ecosystems, environmental knowledge, motivation, and attitudes towards the environment individually and jointly influence the behavior of the community to maintain the residential environment in the upstream Mamasa watershed.
