Abstract

At the Third UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction (UNWCDRR) held in March 2015 in Sendai City, Japan, the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015–2030 (SFDRR) containing seven global targets was adopted by 187 UN member states. This study aims at uncovering the features of the existing literature concerning disaster statistics, especially the effort at the seven global targets of the SFDRR, toward boosting evidence-based policy-making for sustainable Disaster Risk Reduction, as well as implementing the seven global targets of the SFDRR. In this study, we conducted a general literature review of the previous studies related to the SFDRR in order to classify the previous studies related to the seven global targets of the SFDRR, followed by text mining analysis to confirm the results of the preceding literature review. As a result, characteristic words such as health, mortality, and so forth were recognized and grasped in both approaches, whereas words related to international cooperation or multi-hazard early warning systems were hardly used. According to the results, the seven global targets have not been treated equally in the existing literature.
