The Fourth Plenary Meeting of the Eighth Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea stressed it as an important issue to push ahead with afforestation for erosion control all the year round.

This year afforestation for erosion control has been pressed on with in all parts of the country, producing substantial results, and some of them have carried out such task for the next year.

Kangwon Province has  undertaken the relevant projects around the mountains surrounding Kimhwa county town in such a way as to create national models and Haeju City in South Hwanghae Province carried out its planned task in a qualitative way and earlier than others in the province.

Kujang County in North Phyongan Province regards such project as a matter vital to its fate as it has many mountains and rivers and has always paid close attention to it.

This year, too, the county took practical measures and drew up action plans before carrying out the plans exactly.

Special efforts have been put in to strengthen the material and technical foundation of the station for afforestation for erosion control of the county.

This enabled the county to promote its own development while preventing damage from natural calamities though it also had much rain accompanied by downpours this year.

Afforestation for erosion control is vital not only to mountainous counties.

Onchon County in lowland Nampho on the west coast of Korea has not a specially large river but many rivers stretching in different directions.

It had to rid the rivers of the risk factors related to flood in order to spruce itself up and increase agricultural production.

“One important issue was to prevent the bottoms of the rivers from rising owing to earth and sand and stones washed down by rainwater. Therefore, the county’s attention was focused on afforestation for erosion control,” says an official of the county.

After drawing up a detailed programme, the county put efforts into construction direction so that all relevant projects under way in a three-dimensional way in different areas were completed at a high qualitative level. As a result, the relevant tasks planned to be finished by the end of May were done ahead of schedule, making it possible to reduce damage from flash flood.

Working people across the country now continue to push ahead with afforestation for erosion control to put the country’s capacity for disaster prevention onto a higher level in the shortest possible time and remove all flood risk factors.
