The Ministry of Strategy and Finance(MOSF) of the Republic of Korea launched the Knowledge Sharing Program(KSP),
a new paradigm of development cooperation, in 2004. It aims at sharing its development know-how,
assisting the partner countries and working toward lessening the knowledge divide.
Since its establishment, KSP has grown in size and complexity, and has become a main channel for Korea’s knowledge sharing activities.
In collaboration with MOSF, KSP has three pillars as below;
Policy Consultation – Bilateral KSP
KSP provides policy consultation centered on the needs of partner countries.
KSP consultants, with years of experience and expertise, work hand-in-hand with policy maker and
practitioners of partner countries. KSP is a joint program based on collaborative research,
training and consultation. The KSP Policy Consultation is lead by Korea Development Institute(KDI).
Joint Consulting with International Organizations(IOs) - Multilateral KSP
The Joint Consulting with IOs connects lessons learned from Korea’s development experience with IOs’
development consulting expertise. KSP consultants and IO teams work together to further enhance the
implementation of IO’s technical assistance/cooperation projects.
This program has been carried out by the Korea EXIMbank under MOSF since 2011.
Modularization is a project to create a comprehensive set of knowledge contents that systematically document Korea’s
development experience for effective knowledge sharing. The content areas include economic policy, administration.
ICT, agricultural policy, health and medicine, industrial development, human resources, land development and environment.
The modularized documents will be used ad preliminary materials for designing and implementing the policy
consultations as well as other knowledge-oriented development cooperation programs.
