The Netherlands is a low-lying country with an abundance of water. The Delta Programme is in place to protect the Netherlands from high water and flooding, to ensure a sufficient supply of fresh water, and to contribute to rendering the Netherlands climate-proof and water-resilient. This website provides background information on the Delta Programme along with a brief summary of its contents. Detailed information on the progress of the work on our delta can be found in the online version of Delta Programme 2022: “Every new development climateproof”.
