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.

Heatwaves amplified by high humidity can reach above 40°C and may occur as often as every two years, leading to serious risks for human health. If global temperatures rise by 4°C, a new super heatwave of 55°C may regularly impact many parts of the world, including Europe.

Weather-related disasters could affect around two-thirds of the European population annually by the end of this century. This could result in a 50-fold increase in fatalities compared to today if no measures are taken, according to a new study by the Joint Research Centre – the science and knowledge service of the European Commission.
