Global Cooperation Council - Learning from Korea's 'Saemaul Undong' to Achieve SDGs

Although most attribute South Korea's history of development to the country's booming industry, the Deputy Permanent Representative of the Mission of South Korea to the U.N., Ambassador Choonghee Hahn, believes that Saemaul Undong was the critical factor which led to success in the 1970's, and it is an inspiration for future environmentally sustainable development in today's era of rapid urbanization and industrialization.
"This movement is needed in order for every person to change their vision from hopeless to hopeful, and from poverty to prosperity," Hahn told IPS in an interview. "Korea would like to share this development experience with every country in the world." Hahn told IPS that the prominent aspects setting Saemaul Undong apart from mainstream development strategies, have been or are in the process of being incorporated into development projects in 30 countries around the world, such as Ethiopia, Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania, Afghanistan, Myanmar, Laos, and Cambodia. "This is why music is a big part of the development process," Hahn said. One of the two most popular songs sung by communities were composed by President Park. The song "Jal Sala Boseh" sent a message of being rich and prosperous, and "Saebyuck Jong-i Ulryutneh" said "a new day is beginning, let's get together to build a new village", Hahn recalled. A strong belief in self-reliance, through local agencies, the idea of making the country less dependent on foreign aid, and eventually less dependent on government, were key growth strategies, according to Hahn.
