The Ministry of Public Safety and Security (MPSS) of the Government of the Republic of Korea and the City of Incheon are the two main supporters of the Office. Both have committed to a long-term partnership with UNISDR.
The Government of the Republic of Korea continues to emerge as a leading player in international efforts for more effective policy and action to reduce disaster risk.
Meanwhile, Incheon Free Economic Zone (IFEZ), where the Office is located, continues to grow as a hub for international action in resilient development.
