Achieving the MDGs for Poverty Reduction
Given Korea’s own development experience, KOICA believes that promoting self-reliance through capacity building is the key to development. However, in order for a nation to be productive and self-reliant, the basic needs of a country must be satisfied. KOICA fervently supports the MDGs and believes that their fulfillment will lay the foundations for socio-economic development in partner countries. Therefore, KOICA has endeavored to focus assistance on seven priority sectors in line with the MDGs while increasing resources for the least developed countries and participating in international initiatives to promote innovative financing for development.
Achieving Universal Primary Education
Access to basic education is a fundamental right for all people and provides the tools they need to escape from poverty and build a democratic society.
Combating Global Health Issues
In order to reduce the mortality rate for both mothers and children under the age of five, and eradicate HIV/AIDS, malaria and other major infectious disease, KOICA is trying to improve public health and health care in developing countries.
Agricultural Development
To eradicate extreme poverty and hunger, it is essential to improve agricultural productivity and raise rural living standards and incomes in partner countries.
Ensuring Environmental Sustainability
Poverty reduction is impossible in the long term without consideration to the natural resources and environmental problems, such as climate change, deforestation, and a decrease in biodiversity.
Promoting Gender Equality
There is a greater need to invest in alleviating the poverty of women and improving gender equality in developing countries.
