Following the launch of the Mekong-ROK Partnership in 2011, MKCF was established in 2013 to support the implementation of cooperation activities initiated by the Mekong countries and ROK under the Mekong-ROK Cooperation Framework.

MKCF encourages cooperation across the seven priority sectors outlined in the “Mekong-Han River Declaration for Establishing Partnership for People, Prosperity and Peace” at the 1st Mekong-ROK Summit in 2019.

The Fund provides grant for projects that are regional in nature. The themes of the proposed projects must both address national development objectives and promote regional integration. Selected projects can be implemented in a single country; however, impacts must be shared among countries in the Mekong region and ROK.
