Based upon some case studies including the Typhoon 'Nari' of 2007, the paper attempts to discuss the problems/obstacles observed in the process of disaster relief services by local governments, and to search an efficient disaster relief service system in Korea. Two primary problems, namely i) local governments' lack of emergency response capacity and ii) poverty of cooperative relief system in the fields are elaborated. In order to resolve these problems, necessity of private-public partnership in the relief service is emphasized, and significance of people's participation for the effective response-recovery are highlighted. The concept of co-production was introduced in order to recognize local people as disaster relief service producer, and the role of intermediate support organizations are stressed to propel the cooperation among administrative bodies, NGOs and local people. As the realistic strategies for the co-production as well as cooperation, local governments' response capacity building, role of local volunteer centers and formation of cooperation network among the stakeholders are suggested.
