We consider the inverse conductivity problem of how to reconstruct an isotropic electric conductivity distribution in a conductive body from static electric measurements on the boundary of the body. An exact algorithm for the reconstruction of a conductivity in a planer domain from the associated Dirichlet-to-Neumann map is given. We assume that the conductivity has essentially one derivative, and hence we improve earlier reconstruction results. The method relies on a reduction of the conductivity equation to a first order system, to which the $\bar \partial$-method of inverse scattering theory can be apllied.
