This research aims to discuss actors' network in handling flood disasters in DKI Jakarta in January 2020. With the increasing number of disasters globally and in Indonesia, the discussion about non-government actors' role in disaster response is relevant to disaster management studies. Disaster response, as one of the disaster management phases in the case of flood disasters, is crucial for reducing the impact of a catastrophe and increasing the public sector's resilience and society after a disaster happens. This research was conducted with mass-media content analysis, using the keyword "DKI Jakarta flood"to collect published news between 1-6 January 2020. Then, the collected news was analyzed with Discourse Network Analyzer. The analysis found that there were contributions from both government and non-government. Food support is the most common type of contribution that was chosen for disaster management assistance. The private sector and community organizations were the non-state actors that played a huge part in post-disaster aid. Although there are roles of non-state actors in disaster management, there are obstacles in its implementation. Some of those are unsupportive regulation, the absence of an institutional framework, and various actors' commitment to collaborative disaster management.
