Data were processed using the environment against the economic valuation approach coastal waters Kutai Kertanegara followed by dynamic analysis. The result showed that the Total Economic Value of mangrove ecosystems in the Mahakam Delta area with an area of ±150,000 ha is Rp. 4,203,100,332,500/year or Rp. 28,020,669/ha/year. The direct benefits of mangrove ecosystem that is used by people around the region provides the larges contribution of Rp. 1,871,967,115,-. Our simulation results show that the amount of comensation that incurred by each industry Rp. 2.254.196.642/year and impaired to Rp. 2.039.938.021/year, while the compensation/pollution tax for the loss in production that should be Rp. 214,941,877,125/year, borne by each of pollutant sources and community the mining industry worth USD 514,162,739/year.
