Delta Programme

The Netherlands is a low-lying, flood-prone country. The government wants to ensure that the Netherlands is protected against flooding, now and in the future, and prepared for weather extremes. Furthermore, sufficient fresh water must be available.

Under the Delta Programme, the government has entered into innovative collaborations with residents, businesses, knowledge institutes, and NGOs.

The Delta Programme Commissioner is the government official responsible for the Delta Programme.
