Publication Date:

This case study first examines the drivers of forest degradation within the historical, economic, social, and administrative contexts of the ROK. It then describes the background, methodology, and implementation processes which led to the success of the National Reforestation Programme in the ROK. An analysis of the key factors which contributed to this success story may be useful to other nations with similar objectives, who can learn from the Korean model and adapt it to their own needs.
