What is Development Project and DEEP

Since its establishment in 1991, KOICA has been conducting a number of development projects in order to support socio-economic development and welfare condition of partner countries. Development project, which integrates dispatch of experts, invitational training, provision of equipment and construction of infrastructure, is the main form of the KOICA’s assistance. In addition, Development Experience Exchange Program (DEEP) is a form of project that focuses mainly on technical cooperation in order to share knowledge, skills and know-how accumulated from the successful development experiences of the Republic of Korea.

 

Integrated Process

Development projects are characterized by an integrative nature. They involve technical aspects such as construction and equipment and software aspects such as expert deployment and invitational training for government officials. As a comprehensive form of partnership between KOICA and its partner countries, these projects are implemented under an estimated timeline (2-5 years) and a budget plan. Integrated and comprehensive project process/cycle encompasses identification of project opportunity, designing, implementation and management of project, and project evaluation.

 

CPS and Sectors

The Korean government’s Country Partnership Strategy (CPS) contains analysis of developing country’s ODA environment, development priority and implementation strategies of the Republic of Korea. Aligned with the government’s strategy, KOICA has supported developing countries to lead safer and healthier lives in diverse sectors: Education, Health, Public Administration, Rural Development, Technology, Environment and Energy, etc. (see ‘Sector’ part for details). In order to contribute to the achievement of development goals of each partner country, KOICA has strived to continue its efforts to formulate recipient-oriented development projects that mainly consider the priority needs and areas of partner countries.
