Welcome Message

Dr. Park, Jae Soon, KCID PresidentThe 22nd ICID Congress and the 65th IEC Meeting under the theme of “Securing Water for Food and Rural Community under Climate Change” will be held for 7 days in Gwangju, from 14th to 20th on September 2014.


In recent years, securing water is a huge issue throughout the world. Therefore, the ICID and the member nations take an important part in spreading knowledge and sharing the skills for the water security.
Korea became a member of ICID in 1969. Hand in hand with the ICID, we implemented various rural improvement projects, in order to develop better circumstances for Korean irrigation, drainage, flood control, river improvement, and environmental preservation.

 

Since the 52nd IEC Meeting and the 1st Asian Regional Conference in Seoul, Korea in 2001, Korea has put a nationwide effort into securing water, such as, implementing ‘4 Rivers Restoration Project’, building 16 weirs for more efficient water management and flood control.

 

A leading culture capital city, Gwangju has long been renowned for its tradition, customs, culture and arts. It is home to the Gwangju Biennale, held every two years to celebrate the worldwide artistic accomplishments by accommodating works of both Asian and contemporary Western art on the basis of the city’s own illustrious cultural legacy and heritage.

 

About Korea

 

The cultural legacy of Gwangju is inseparable from the tumults of modern history it has experienced, includ- ing the May 18 in 1980 Democratization Movement and the importance of democracy, human rights, and peace the movement has epitomized. The Gwangju spirit was aroused every time the nation faced a crisis, reaching its peak with the May 18 Democratization Movement. The movement serves not only as a beacon for the burgeoning of democracy in the Republic of Korea, but for the movements of democracy, human rights, and peace in other Asian countries as well.

 

KCID sincerely hopes that the 22nd ICID Congress and the 65th IEC Meeting in Gwangju, Korea will becomes a cornerstone for a paradigm shifting of water security, and also a place where the ICID members can share useful information and build a close network.

Yours truly,


Park, Jae Soon
