Korea Water Resources Association (KWRA)
is a non-profit organization with more than
2,000 members from practicing hydro engineers
as well as academians in Korea.
KWRA was founded in 1967 to
contribute to the academic developments
and public welfares regarding the earth
waters. Its mission is to explore various
countermeasures for a sustainable balance
between structural and non-structural approaches

and the restoration of aquatic ecosystems.
KWRA expects to address various
approaches and methods used for the prediction
and management of water resources, to exchange
advanced experiences in the areas of integrated
watershed managements and to share new innovative
developments for the scientific managements
of water resources.
As a member of World Water
Council and IHP (International Hydrological
Programme) of UN, KWRA is trying to foster
rapid buildups of water engineering technologies
in close cooperations with other countries.
The united efforts will take the lead in
the technological developments of water
To meet the needs both at home
and abroad, KWRA is promoting the scientific
knowledges of the processes of water cycles
and flows on the earth and leading the government
policy-making for the progress of water
resources technologies to contribute to
the national welfares.
Thank you very much.
