Description of Valuation of Economic Value Potential Natural Resources and Environment In Bone Bolango Regency, Gorontalo Province
The research describes the results of the value-benefit valuation analysis economics of natural resources and the environment. Which consists of the value of forest resource benefits (the total value of direct benefits, the total value of indirect benefits, the total value of the selected benefits, the value of existence), the value of the economic benefits of metallic and non-metallic mineral resources, the value of the economic benefits of water resources, and the potential for disasters located in the district of Bone Bolango. The method used in this research is quantitative and qualitative descriptive analysis. The results showed that the total economic value of natural resources was 2,319,253,906 per year. This value by adding up the total value of direct benefits (Rp. 392,880,000 per year), the total value of indirect benefits expressed in terms of the potential value of carbon sequestration (Rp. 1,034,261,659.3 per year), the total value of optional benefits (Rp. 224,195,580 per year) and the total value of the option benefit value of existence (Rp. 667,916,666.67 per year). The value of the economic benefits of metal mineral resources obtained is Rp. 2,541,843,750,000,000. and non-metallic (rock) mineral resources ofRp. 321,131,698,296,310. The value of the economic benefits of water resources obtained is 917,744,767.2 m3/year x Rp. 4.750/m3 = Rp. 4,359,287,644,200 per year. 10 forms of potential disasters located in the district of Bone Bolango, namely: floods, extreme waves & abrasion, earthquakes, droughts, extreme weather, landslides, forest and land fires, epidemics and disease outbreaks, tsunamis and flash floods. The potential loss (total economic value) due to the disaster is Rp. 6,701,830,000,000. The conclusion obtained is that there is a comparison of four potential natural resources in the Bone Bolango district, namely the potential value of mineral/metal mining resources of 88%, the potential of mineral resources/non-metal mining of 11.12%, the potential of forest and land resources of 11.12%. 0.67% and water resource potential of 0.15%. Most of the potential natural and environmental resources contained in this area are minerals (mining).The economic valuation of natural resources and the environment can contribute to the regional economic development of Bone Bolango district. The recommendation from this study is that there must be a balance between investment activities that utilize the potential of natural resources and environment with natural resource conservation activities and the consideration of potential disaster risks.
