Introduction

R&D for the development of public landHydro Science and Engineering Research Institute

Hydro Science and Engineering Research Institute makes significant efforts to establish research and development on securing and managing water resources, flood, restoring ecological rivers, and reducing coastal disasters. Water resource research supports sustainable development, efficient waterway utilization and water resource preservation. The institute helps establish government policies and plans for: water resources, flood damage control, drought control, waterway surveys, subterranean water mapping, and proposes measures to monitor climate change. Hydro Science and Engineering Research Institute also provides hydraulic analysis and tests for: rivers, estuaries, and coastal areas as well as evaluates and improves eco-friendly ecological engineering technologies, hydraulic structures, coastal structures and port infrastructure.
