The Republic of Korea joined OECD’s DAC (Development Co-operation Directorate)
as a member country in 2009, and became the first country to transform itself
from an aid recipient to a donor. On December 30th, 2010, the Korea Research Institute
for Human Settlements established the Global Development Partnership Center (GDPC)
to better suit the needs of the country’s foreign development aid policy. The GDPC
will celebrate its first anniversary in December 2011.
The GPDC shares with developing countries KRIHS’ knowledge and experience on Korea’s
land development policy accumulated over the past 33 years through foreign government
official trainings. Moreover, the center supports developing countries to establish their spatial plans such as national territory and regional development plans, and conducts consulting services in the fields of the land, and housing sector, to name a few.
In particular, the center focuses on knowledge sharing programs. The six training
courses that the GDPC has successfully conducted over the past year are as follows:
the Transportation Infrastructure Policy Course; the Urban Planning and Development
Course; the Urban & Regional Development Policy Course; the Urban Planning and
Policy Course; the ASEAN Logistics Policy Training Program; and the IDB-KSP Sustainable
Emerging Cities Initiatives Research Training Program.
This is the third publication of the Planning & Policy Report since the GDPC opened.
This issue contains reports from training program participants in 2011, with each article on their respective countries’ urban planning and policy directions based on Korea’s national territorial plan and growth experience. The report also features a special report-on flood plan policy direction for Jakarta, Indonesia which recently suffered serious flooding-contributed by Dr. Hongjoo Hahm from the World Bank’s Croatia Country Office.
The Planning & Policy Report is distributed to international organizations, government
agencies in developing countries and both domestic and overseas research institutes,
to assist national experts and government officials who are seeking policy alternatives.
The GDPC sincerely thanks the authors and contributors of this report. In 2012, the
GDPC will organize customized and researched-based training courses and publish
GDPC’s policy report, serving as a good opportunity to cooperate with developing
countries. We sincerely ask for your continued interest and cooperation. Thank you.
