Abstract: Water management at local area level is considered important for stable natural resource management. This study examines the pattern of knowledge transfer among community members, government sectors and educational institutes in respect of local area water management in accordance with royal initiatives in Southern Thailand. These initiatives encompass all dimensions of water management, including local water problems, geography, and the lifestyle and culture of local people. The ultimate goal is to ensure that people will have sufficient water for consumption all year round and that they can be financially self-reliant. The results of the present study indicate that collaboration and knowledge transfer among community, government agencies and universities are the main factors in successful management. The pattern of knowledge transfer is characterized as a knowledge triangle, in which every sector must fully understand the nature of water, access to water, and water-related development. In addition, knowledge must reflect the local situation, including stage of start-up and scale-up. The knowledge triangle can help to increase collaboration across all sectors, based on knowledge and development role.
