  Abstract There is significant gap in the literature and past research on Knowledge Management Systems (KMS) in the domain of disasters. This PhD research work is an action research to design and implement a web-based knowledge management system that aims to fill this theoretical gap in KMS for disasters and to improve the disaster planning and response efforts within an institutional context. The diagnostic stage results imply that the organisation can benefit from the implementation of an information system to support its disaster planning and response efforts. Current scenario at the State Crisis and Security Council (SCSC) in Malaysia revealed some real challenges pertaining to communication, coordination and knowledge processes between SCSC and its district level officers (DO). The proposition of this research is that a well-defined knowledge management system can successfully support disaster planning and response effort in organizations.
