There is no formal agreement between the UK and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) regarding project activity. The UK supports projects delivered by a range of international non-governmental organisations who work in co-ordination with the DPRK government. In recent years, UK funding has contributed to projects taking place in: Pyongyang; North Hwanghae Province; North Pyongyan Province; and Kangwon Province.
