Chairman's Message


Sustainable development of global community is a challenge for all of us.

for we respond to those who call out for help,
for we have suffered their pain and difficulties,
for being with them is helping ourselves.

Young people who dream of international development and seniors who want to share their experiences of development have gathered together.
We set a goal of creating impact in international development and becoming the cradle for young people on this purpose.
Ceaseless steps in the wild road have led us closer to the dream for a better world together.

Young men and women captivated in international development,
Seniors who want to share their knowledge and wisdom for the countries in need,
And global friends who need Korean companion for their efforts for development,
Let’s take hand in hand and reap the fruits of international development together!

Seung-Hun Chun, Ph. D President Korea Institute for Development Strategy
