  Keywords Disaster, Knowledge Transfer, networks, Knowledge Management models  
  Abstract Most countries are now establishing multi-stakeholder, multi-institutional networks and partnerships to respond to flood disasters. The paucity of research directed towards knowledge transfer in networks keeps some important research questions unanswered. These include (1) how the knowledge of a certain disaster management stakeholder (or a group) is transferred to other stakeholders during the disaster response, and (2) what are the barriers and enablers of knowledge transfer in multi-stakeholder environments. This article analyses knowledge transfer practices employed by a selected local government agency and a community group in Sri Lanka and reflects on the practices with the help of Hedlund's Knowledge Management Model (1994). The grounded theory analysis was used in this study to present the enablers and barriers of knowledge transfer in this context and the findings have a great potential to be used in future research towards developing knowledge management models specific to disaster response.
