Democratic People's Republic of Korea

Democratic People's Republic of Korea

Why DPRK? Chronic food insecurity and childhood malnutrition are widespread in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK). Over 10 million people are undernourished and increased frequency of droughts and floods have also left the country vulnerable.

A vulnerable nation

DPRK continues to face a multitude of challenges and remains extremely vulnerable to frequent disasters and the impact of the climate crisis.

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.

How we’re helping DPRK

Concern DPRK is implementing multiple projects aimed at improving food and nutrition security and nutrition, enhancing WASH access, and supporting communities to become more resilient.
