This paper aims to analyse the current and emerging knowledge gaps of construction practitioners as highlighted by the national and local government stakeholders. Accordingly, the paper provides an extensive analysis of knowledge gaps, which were captured via 20 semi-structured interviews with national and local government stakeholders. Knowledge gaps were analysed in relation to social, technological, environmental, economic and institutional factors and property life-cycle stages.

Some of the key knowledge gaps identified in the study are, business continuation management; damage assessments and claims; financing, budgeting and estimating; building codes, regulations and planning; resilient buildings and infrastructure; community empowerment; stakeholder management; legal frameworks and compliance; disaster risk assessment; environmental impact assessment and management; and knowledge management.
