The Netherlands is a low-lying country with a lot of water. The Delta Programme protects the Netherlands against high water and flooding, ensures there is enough fresh water, and contributes to climate-resilient and water-robust planning for our country. This website provides you with background information about the Delta Programme and a brief outline of its contents. Detailed information about the progress of the work on our delta can be found in the online version of the 2024 Delta Programme: ‘Now for the future’.
