Irrigation: Korea, a land where soft, semi-barren hills provide rapid run-off for rain-fall and where the rainy season does not coincide with the time of moisture need, has for centuries had an immense and intricate system of irrigation. But war damage and neglect have ruined many installations. And the rapidly increasing population demands that more and more land be placed under cultivation. UNKRA has therefore launched an extensive program of repair and construction of irrigation facilities. Materials valued at $1,460,000 were imported under the FY 1954 program, and further imports worth $480,000 are programmed for FY 1954.

Crafts - Korean Weavers: Most villages in Korea produce cloth for their own needs, many of them have well-organized, though somewhat primitive, industries manufacturing cloth for sale on the city markets. The raw cotton is supplied by the large textile plants rebuilt and re-equipped by UNKRA.
