Small-scale Waterworks and Sewerage Systems
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 Shari

Abstract

Water is essential for human life, to the extent that the right to clean water and proper water sanitation can be considered a basic human right. Nevertheless, many people in the poorest developing countries do not have access to clean water and proper water sanitation because their governments lack the financial and/or administrative capacity to resolve such problems. In particular, residents in rural areas tend to have inferior water supply and sanitary facilities.
Korea was able to rapidly increase its clean water supply rate in a short period of time thanks to the active efforts of its government, the introduction of loans from foreign countries and the issuing of local government bonds for the restoration of water supply facilities destroyed during the Korean War. Still, rural communities in Korea had experienced numerous water-related problems, such as water-borne epidemics because the wells (the main water supply facility in the 1970s) were located mostly adjacent to livestock pens and domestic sewage.
