HERNANDEZ VALDIVIA, Miriam Susana; VALDIVIA ALCALA, Ramón  e  HERNANDEZ ORTIZ, Juan. Assessment of environmental and recreational services of the San Juan de Aragón forest, Mexico City. Rev. mex. de cienc. forestales [online]. 2019, vol.10, n.54, pp.100-117. ISSN 2007-1132.

In this study an economic valuation was carried out applying the Contingent Valuation Method (MVC). The San Juan de Aragón Forest (BSJA) was chosen as the case study. The forest is located within the Gustavo A. Madero Demarcation of CDMX, and is the second largest green area in the City. The main problem of the BSJA is the deterioration and bad use of the environmental and recreational services that this generates to the neighboring population and to the visitors. The Availability to Pay (DAP) is estimated by visitors for their conservation and restoration with the main objective of estimating the economic value they provide. There were 120 surveys, which were processed and analyzed econometrically with the NLOGIT 4.0.1 program. The results showed that the DAP was $MX7.36 per person per entry, the economic value of the environmental services of the BSJA amounted to $MX25,620,000.00 per year. 61 % of the respondents are willing to pay for the conservation and recovery of the Forest. The significant variables were: proposed price, age, sex, marital status, family income, number of members, current situation and level of satisfaction. The possible explanation for a low WTP is the lack of information on the environmental benefits of the BSJA by visitors.
