  The purpose of this research is to arrange and introduce Korea’s waste management policies in order to modularize Korean knowledge and experience in this field, thereby establishing customized knowledge content that may be used as basic materials in Knowledge Sharing Projects for developing countries and other cooperative projects for development. In this chapter, an overall introduction is made on this research, including its background, purpose, and the method of implementation.
  First, Korea’s resource management and policies are introduced to developing countries. To enable developing countries to behold Korea’s waste policies thus far in a single glance, overall policy paradigm shifts are introduced, centered on related legislation and policies. Next, Korea’s waste management systems are distinguished into the discharger fee system, producer fee system, systems for each type of wastes, and the system of certification for the lawful treatment of wastes, whereupon the background surrounding their introduction and enactment will be introduced in specific terms. Furthermore, the causes of conflicts surrounding the selection of sites for waste treatment facilities, which developing countries are interested in understanding, will be analyzed, and the resolutions thereof will be explained through perspectives on cases in Korea.
  Second, Korea’s waste management and utilization policies will be compared with other advanced countries such as Europe, Japan, and the USA to find the present status of Korean policies. Also the outcomes and limits of the Volume-Rate Waste Disposal System and Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) are introduced as representative Korean polices. 
  Finally, policy proposals for developing countries will be made, distinguished into waste treatment, waste reduction and recycling, and the resource circulation phase. These will be established into a body of waste-related knowledge content for developing countries so as to allow them to benchmark their own Integrated Solid Waste Management systems.
