The structure of the proposed FLOOD-CBA ‘Knowledge Platform’ was discussed at a meeting at the Royal Society in London on the 12th November 2013. The 25 delegates to this meeting included those from local authorities and the National Flood Forum, an organisation bringing together Flood Action Groups from local flood-affected communities from up and down the country. Feedback from this meeting and other consultations organised by the FLOOD-CBA consortium will be used to improve the ‘Knowledge Platform’ by making it more “user-friendly”.

The Royal Society is the national Academy of science in the UK. Its origins lie in an ‘invisible college’ of natural philosophers who began meeting in the mid-1640s to discuss the new philosophy of promoting knowledge of the natural world through observation and experiment, which we now call ‘science’. The Society’s official foundation date was the 28th November 1660.
