Abstract

This article analyzed the improvement of a mechanism in relation to Korean disaster management, particularly of typhoons accompanied by floods. The analysis was done on the basis of own cultural background to ultimately mitigate disaster. By utilizing qualitative content analysis, both triangle- and quadrangle-style approaches have been compared via four factors, namely, national government's policies, business strategies, researchers' efforts, and volunteer activities. The article is valuable as a review of a mechanism of Korean disaster management which has been initially and comprehensively outlined. The key finding is that Korea has to change its current triangle-style approach to a quadrangle-style approach to reduce the impacts of typhoons accompanied by floods. In doing so, both challenges and alternatives or solutions have been identified for Korea.
