초록 As the consideration for the fundamental externality can not be done in the mechanism of market, the direct payments system is supported by sufficient justification as the governmental intervention and a positive incentive from a theoretical aspect. In addition, Under the situation where the limitation on the government intervention is intensified under WTO system, the Environmentally Friendly Direct Payment Program (EPDPP) is the more effective measure of policy which is acknowledged as allowable item for the preservation of the environment. Since the EPDPP in Korea was introduced in 1999, it is highly evaluated by not only the farmers as the targets for policy but also by the officials in charge of policy administration as a positive promotion program for environmentally friendly farming. However, the result of policy evaluation on the Program suggested the necessity of upward adjustment of unit amount of direct payments, differentiation of payments by year of implementation, the establishment of proper monitoring system and continuous and significant expansion of budget for the direct payment program.
