Despite the key role science plays in the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, disaster science represents only 0.22% of the world’s total scholarly output.

The data suggests that countries focus their research on disaster types with high domestic relevance. Asia appears to have a central position in the disaster science field.

Disaster science has also an overall degree of international collaboration of 20%, which is slightly higher than the global average in all fields of science of around 18% during the time period covered.

Countries hoping to boost scientific impact should favour international exchange and collaboration, according to the latest joint research from the JRC and Ohio State University, published this week in Nature.

The research offers strong support to the open rationale of the European Commission's research funding programmes in Horizon 2020.
