Agricultural Development - We conduct mid-to long-term programs for agricultural development in North Korea.

Unlike South Korean children who have never experienced hunger

Resolve root cause of food crisis of DPRK
The food crisis faced by DPRK cannot be address with a temporary support, rather it should
be dealt with a consistent and long-term approach. Thus, World Vision has greatly increased
the production of non-virus seed potato and supported to produce vegetables and fruit so that North Koreans can consume nutrients like vitamins as much as possible. In addition, North
and South agriculturalists have a regular meeting to examine and plan out for DPRK’s
agricultural sector.
Agricultural development project sites
Goal
Resolving DPRK’s chronic food crisis through producing potatoes
As DPRK lacks around 2 million tons of food every year, World Vision plans to help the country produce more than 4 million tons of potatoes on its own to tackle the food shortage problem.
Increasing production amount of vegetables and fruit for people’s health
World Vision produces locally-adapted seeds for DPRK so that North Koreans consume
more vegetables and fruit to have a balanced healthy diet.
Conducting a joint research for basic agricultural infrastructure and advanced agricultural technology
South and North Korean agriculturalists conduct researches on soil, diseases and insects to increase the amount of crops per unit area.
Projects under way
Germfree seed potatoes are produced at 5 seed potato production sites and distributed
throughout the country.
Researches are being conducted to produce high quality seeds of fruit and vegetables to
increase the amount of crops.
World Vision provides maintenance equipment to project sites and trains workers to operate
the projects effectively.
