DPRK continues to face a multitude of challenges and remains extremely vulnerable to frequent disasters and the impact of climate change. In September 2019, DPRK was hit by typhoon Lingling. It brought strong wind and heavy rain, causing
significant damage to crops and livelihoods.
Separately, around 20% of the population face gaps in the water supply, with a significant lack of resources to replace dilapidated facilities.
Our work in DPRK mainly focuses on improving food security and nutrition, water and sanitation, responding to emergencies, and building resilience.
We are proud of Concern’s strong presence in DPRK, addressing the most complex and protracted humanitarian crises.
