This study aims to suggest concrete measures to be taken for the cooperation between South and North Korea in their border region through Peace Belt establishment. The need and feasibility of building a Peace Belt in the border region, including the Demilitarized Zone, is examined in the paper. An integrated cooperation plan is suggested for developing the border region such as plans for cooperatively using the resources, conserving the natural environment, and designating and developing the Cooperation Zones. Other cooperative projects included in the plan are traffic network connection, natural disaster prevention, and excavation and restoration of the cultural and historic heritages in the region.
Through the careful and thorough examination on the potential Peace Belt in the border region, the study is expected to contribute to the appropriate and rational utilization of the national territory and the settlement of peace on the Korean peninsula, with the belt laying a strengthened foundation for inter-Korean exchanges and cooperation.
