Land & Ecosystem

It is a prime requisite for us to harmonize and secure environmental conditions such as the land, ocean, and ecosystem intact as possible from human activities. However, unnecessary large scale constructions and public work projects have not only incurred substantial economic expenses, it has also altered the land conditions resulting in soil degradation, loss in biodiversity, and so on. In fact, South Korea has utilized 57 million tons of concrete in 2006 which was twice the level of Japan’s that year as well as accounted for 22 percent of the national budget for public construction expenditure in 2007. In response, KFEM works to conserve ecosystems, such as forests and lands and to propose alternative policy options to safeguard the inherent terrestrial conditions.
