Food Security and Rural Development
Hunger and malnutrition continue to be problems in DPRK.In the past, UNDP concentrated on increasing grain production. Today, the focus is on diversifying agriculture (such as vegetables and alternative grain production) to help meet DPRK’s food security needs. Interventions will include small-scale agro-processing demonstration projects in rural areas, which will help to create more such units, improve the availability of nutritious food and generate employment opportunities for men and women.
