Abstract

O objetivo principal da presente pesquisa, foi o de estimar o valor monetário dos danos causados ao município de Porto Nacional – TO advindos da implantação da Usina Hidroelétrica Luis Eduardo Magalhães. Para tanto, foi aplicado o Método de Valoração Contingente, adotando-se a forma de eliciação do tipo “jogos de leilão”. O procedimento metodológico foi o da coleta, elaboração e análise de dados. Foi constituída uma amostra aleatória de indivíduos que revelaram suas Disposições a Receber (DAR) um valor que compensasse as perdas em seu bem-estar em razão do processo de alagamento. Com o método obteve-se uma DAR média de R$ 29,25, incorrendo em um valor de R$ 16.246.035,00, o que representa uma estimativa do valor anual dos danos gerados no bem-estar da população local. O valor encontrado serve de sinalizador para a adoção de políticas públicas, e também serve de base para discutir a eficácia do método de cálculo e distribuição das Compensações Financeiras pelo Uso dos Recursos Hídricos.---------------------------------------------The main objective of the present research, was estimate the monetary value of the actual damages in Porto Nacional city caused by the implantation of the Luis Eduardo Magalhães Hydroelectric Plant.
