The aim of this paper is to examine the development of environmental policy in Korea and attempt to characterize the policy with comparative perspective.In the first part of this paper, I would like to give a brief history of the Korean environmental policy, then discuss the political economy of each actor's responses to the deteriorating environmental qualities. In addition, I would like to point out several distinctive features which differenciate the Korean environmental policy from those of other countries.
