Abstract

The north coast of Tangerang Regency, which borders directly with the Java sea, has great potential to be developed and made several coastal areas like the center of economic growth. Coastal Tangerang Regency also has several ecosystem components such as mangrove ecosystems and sand beaches ecosystem, which are currently degradation. Development planning with an ecosystem service approach is essential to understand as an effort to overcome trade-offs between development and the environment. This study aims to assess the Tangerang Regency coastal ecosystem services. The method used is the total economic value approach. Ecosystem services that will be analyzed are mangrove ecosystem services, and sand beach ecosystem services that are on the coast of Tangerang Regency. The data used is secondary data in the last five years (2014-2019). The results showed that the total value of coastal ecosystem services in the Tangerang Regency was IDR 32.610.028.060 per year or the US $ 2,29 million. This value can be considered to protect coastal ecosystems and increase the welfare of coastal communities that depend on ecosystem services. Environmental, economic, and social aspects need to be considered together to create a comprehensive development planning unit.
