Korea's international development cooperation needs collaboration with private organizations to achieve goals such as reduction of poverty in developing countries, support for developing countries and an increase in government's assistance, effectiveness and influence. This study aims to examine PPP strategies for disability-inclusive development cooperation, grasp the current condition of PPP in Korea, and propose a plan for disability-inclusive official development assistance in the utilization of public-private partnership. In terms of official development assistance to promote public-private partnership strategies, the policy implications for disability-inclusive development cooperation are as follows. First, PPP projects shall be supported in a diversified manner, including expanded budget allotment and continuous support for years for disability-inclusive development cooperation. Second, it is necessary to apply the twin-track approach, which is an effective disability-inclusive development method, to selecting PPP projects. Particularly, the disability-inclusive approach needs to be adopted for such projects. Third, it is vital to collaborate with civic organizations and domestic organizations for the disabled to implement PPP projects effectively.
