Mission statement

The Korea International Cooperation Agency was founded as a government agency on April 1, 1991, to maximize the effectiveness of Republic of Korea's grant aid programs for developing countries by implementing the government's grant aid and technical cooperation programs. In the past, development cooperation efforts were focused mainly on meeting the Basic Human Needs(BHNs) of developing countries and on fostering their Human Resources Development(HRD). However, the focus has now broadened to promoting sustainable development, strengthening partnerships with developing partners, and enhancing the local ownership of beneficiaries. Additionally, global concerns such as the environment, poverty reduction, and gender mainstreaming, have gained significant importance in the international community.
