Abstract: With rapid economic development and increasing devastation of natural hazards, rural China has, and would still have, large amount of post-disaster reconstruction. Many reconstruction cases were reported, especially after the 5.12 Sichuan Earthquake. However, there is a lack of systematic studies on the experiences for post-disaster reconstruction in Rural China. Therefore, the precious experiences gained from one reported case are difficult to deliver to other cases facing natural disasters in future. In order to mitigate this deficiency, this study adopts data mining to systematically investigate post-disaster reconstruction in rural China. Considering news reports have a broader audience than that of academic papers, the source of reconstruction cases is reliable online news reports. The time period for consideration is from 12 May 2008 to 31 May 2015. The keywords for identifying possible news reports are "post-disaster reconstruction" and "rural areas". Preliminary refinement is conducted to exclude the news reports introducing policies rather than reconstruction cases. The similarities and differences of the selected reconstruction cases is mined in terms of manpower, organization, financial source, reconstruction approach (concentration versus in situ), identified experiences, and identified problems. Based on the results, the experience and problem checklist is developed for better experience sharing of post-disaster reconstruction in rural China. The results can also facilitates the government and NGOs to find suitable measures to promote sustainable development in post-disaster reconstruction.
