Korea’s River Basin Management Policy
Preface
The study of Korea’s economic and social transformation offers a unique opportunity to better understand the factors that drive development. Within one generation, Korea has transformed itself from a poor agrarian society to a modern industrial nation, a feat never seen before. What makes Korea’s experience so unique is that its rapid economic development was relatively broad-based, meaning that the fruits of Korea’s rapid growth were shared by many. The challenge of course is unlocking the secrets behind Korea’s rapid and broad-based development, which can offer invaluable insights and lessons and knowledge that can be shared with the rest of the international community. Recognizing this, the Korean Ministry of Strategy and Finance (MOSF) and the Korea Development Institute (KDI) launched the Knowledge Sharing Prog

Abstract

This report reviews the impact of Korea’s river basin maintenance and management policies on overall national land development and preservation along with industrial and agricultural development in Korea. Water resource development, which was initiated during the economic development period of 1960-1980 in Korea, pursued environmentally-friendly river maintenance and dam development, which was implemented on the basis of water use and water control. Development of dams brought about economic development and an upgrade in quality of life and national land value. Water resource development policy can be classified according to quality and quantity. In the beginning, the general emphasis was on quantitative development policy, which was intended to solve economic problems. However, after some economic progress, Korea confronted environmental problems such as degradation of water quality by realigning its water resource development policy to improving the quality of water in a more environmentally friendly way.(The rest omitted)
