The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, which was adopted at the Third UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction in March 2015, positions understanding disaster risk as one of the four priorities for action. Also, access to disaster risk information is regarded as one of its seven global targets. Furthermore, it is widely recognized that the enhancement of disaster preparedness has great significance for achieving what is termed as “build back better.” The key research question of this study is: how does stakeholder behavior in disaster risk reduction (DRR) differ at the time of rehabilitation and reconstruction in Aceh? Since many different types of stakeholders participated in the rehabilitation and reconstruction process, there might exist some gaps in their behaviors. This study adopts text mining analysis as the methodology to examine the content of publications issued by DRR stakeholders. The authors utilize KH Coder as the analysis software and examine the three major documents, all of which have described the situation of rehabilitation and reconstruction in Aceh during the period from 2005 to 2008. As a result, we found that the Executing Agency of Rehabilitation and Reconstruction for Aceh and Nias (BRR) and the ADB tended to stress similar words in their reports, whereas Oxfam International behaved in a different manner. This may stem from the nature of each organization and, thus, we considered that the existence of coordinators who are well acquainted with every aspect of reconstruction and rehabilitation is much needed.
