Abstract

Due to such distinguishing characteristics of water resources and topological conditions, water development plans in Korea have been an instrumental part of the national development plans and successful practice of those plans furnished a steppingstone toward remarkable economic growth. The periodic changes in the water management plans are as follow. Basic water infrastructures were built during the industrialization in order to support the economic boost, and in the following period, the plans became more environment conscious as a countermeasure for environmental pollution. Lastly the issues of climate change, sustainability, and conflict were addressed in the 21st centuries. In the early 2000s, the idea of green growth was initiated in response to the high environmental cost of rapid economic development and urbanization. (The rest omitted)
