As a result of recent climate change, natural disasters are becoming not only larger in scale, but more frequent. It is critical for countries to share their experience and technology to prevent such disasters, and for the international community to establish a system for cooperation and collaboration in times of large-scale disasters. Korea is contributing to the global effort to mitigate disaster risks by signing MOUs with other nations and international organizations, offering consultation for establishment of disaster management system, running pilot programs for system development, and organizing technology seminars and invitational training programs. Korea will continue to strive in its efforts to mitigate disasters around the world through strengthened international cooperation for disaster management.
