Starting next year, Korea's National Institute for Disaster Prevention and the Japan Disaster Prevention Research Institute will jointly develop technology to predict volcanic eruptions on Mt. Baekdu and minimize damage, as reported by the Chosunilbo. "We're going to expand policy exchanges and joint research to deal with 'natural' disasters, not only with Japan but with other countries," said National Science and Technology Commission official Kim Cha-dong.
