AFSC’s DPRK (North Korea) program works with four cooperative farms and the Academy of Agricultural Sciences to raise productivity and implement sustainable agricultural practices through pragmatic approaches that can be field-tested on partner co-operative farms. AFSC also occasionally organizes additional education and training opportunities for DPRK individuals, institutions, and government agencies on issues of practical concern to Koreans, promoting exchange with other countries.
