1. Development Project
KOICA’s development projects have both hardware and software features. As
for hardware side, the projects involve building physical infrastructures and
equipment provision. At the same time, KOICA deploys experts and invites public
officials from partner countries for training to strengthen software capacity
of partner countries. Throughout the cycle of project development, planning,
execution and evaluation, KOICA takes a comprehensive approach to allow for
the systematic implementation of projects.
2. Capacity Building for Partner Country
KOICA invites policymakers, public officials and sector experts from partner
countries to share Korea’s development experience and know-how through education
and training programs.
3. Partnerships with International Institutions
KOICA is making sustained efforts to achieve aid harmonization by working
side-by-side with advanced development agencies, international institutions
and international NGOs.
4. Cooperation with the Private Sector
KOICA is committed to enhancing the effectiveness of its development programs
by collaborating with businesses, civil society organizations and universities
to link up KOICA’s expertise in development with their knowledge and know-how.
Since 1991, the Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) and Korea International
Cooperation Agency (KOICA) have implemented technical cooperation and development
study projects―including public policy advice, feasibility study and master
plan development-sharing Korea’s successful development experience and know-how
to foster partner countries’ economic and social growth.
Additionally, with the dawn of the knowledge-based society and growing importance
of knowledge, technology transfer was highlighted. Consequently, developing
countries’ demands for assistance in policy advice and institution building
have been continuously on the rise.
To effectively address such demands, in 2012, MOFA and KOICA integrated the
existing technical cooperation and development study as Development Experience
Exchange Partnership (DEEP) under the slogan of “Beyond Knowledge Sharing and
Towards Capacity Building.”
