These various cooperation projects, which have been in place since the 1990s, are in need of a comprehensive framework, which will be provided by this research project. In accordance with the agreement concluded in February, 2001 at Jeju Island between the Korean Ministry of Environment and the World Bank, KP takes the form of a cooperation project managed and carried out by the World Bank with the Korean government providing a certain annual sum to the World Bank in the form of a trust fund. As a result of selection process of the Ministry of Environment and the World Bank, targets for the project were decided as China, Vietnam, and the Philippines. The knowledge partnership project put forth by the World Bank takes the form of research projects, joint research, case studies, international seminars, etc., while consigned training and pilot projects involving the construction of facilities, etc., are excluded The main purpose of this research project is to discover the demand and formulate plans for inter-Asian environmental cooperation projects based on the Knowledge Partnership Program. The Knowledge Partnership is a structural element in the promotion of inter-Asian environmental cooperation, and through policy studies, case studies, etc., it illuminates the demand for cooperation and occupy an important role in connecting different forms of cooperation through the transfer of Korean knowledge and experience.
