Abstract

The aim of this study is to determine the total economic value (TEV) of the 52,318 ha of deltaic mangrove forest resources in the District of Kuching. The method used to collect the data is the face to face interviews of villagers living in the surrounding areas of the mangrove forests. The mangrove areas chosen in the study include those in the Mukim of Santubong, Matang, Lundu and Sematan. To estimate the total economic value, the means of use value (tangible benefits consisting of timber woods and non-timber mangrove products) and means of willingness to pay (intangible benefits consisting of the conservation and option values) communities in surrounding areas of the forests are calculated. A multiple linear regression analysis is carried out to determine the factors influencing the TEV of the mangrove forests.
