Our work in DPRK mainly focuses on improving food security and nutrition, water and sanitation, responding to emergencies, and building resilience.
DPRK has remained extremely vulnerable to frequent disasters and the impact of climate change. In August 2018, over 600mm of rainfall was recorded in 12 hours, which resulted in flooding and landslides, leaving 76 people dead.
Separately, around 20% of the population face gaps in the water supply, with a noted lack of resources to replace dilapidated facilities.
We are proud of Concern’s strong presence in DPRK, addressing the most complex and protracted humanitarian crisis in the present day scenario.
