NK Agricultural Research Institute - We provide education on agricultural techniques and research in order to address the root causes of the North Korea's food crisis.

WV Korea’s North Korea ministry has focused on agricultural sector involving fertigation vegetable farming since 1998,
evolving to hydroponics seed-potato projects to address chronic food shortage problem since 2000. This efforts has led to
mutual collaboration between agricultural scientists from the South and the North Korea through co-hosting of annual
agricultural symposium by WV Korea and Korean Agricultural Academy of Sciences(KAAS), North Korea. Agricultural scholars from the South and the North participated in the annual symposium since 2001 with the 6th symposium conducted on 15-18 December 2006, in Kaesong, North Korea.

As the symposium has developed to engage participation of government officials and other stakeholders, WV Korea has felt strong need to systematize the current structure
and actively utilize and document the work done and move ahead by establishing North Korea agricultural research institute. Accordingly, WV Korea opened North Korea
Agricultural Research Institute in January 2007.
To celebrate the opening, a high-profile agricultural
symposium was held in Seoul on June 13, 2007 attended by the Minister, Ministry of Unification, agricultural scholars and media.
