Where we work
Our annual report
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 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.
"People are stunted here because they don’t get enough nutrition as children. The physical work that they do every day is enormous."
We delivered water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) support to 30,923 vulnerable people in 2019.
