Abstract

The management of the Matang Mangrove Wetlands in Perak State, Malaysia is under review. To assist decision makers in determining the optimal management strategy, a choice modelling application was undertaken to estimate the non-market values provided under different management options. Implicit prices for environmental attributes including the area of environmental forest protected, the number of bird species protected and the recreation use of the area were estimated. In addition, the implicit price of a social, non-market attribute, the employment of local people in wetland based extractive industries, was estimated. Compensating surplus estimates for a number of alternative wetland management scenarios were also calculated.
