Delta Programme

The Netherlands is a low-lying country with an abundance of water. The national 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 and outlines its content. Detailed information on the progress of the work on our delta is provided in the PDF of Delta Programme 2021 – “Staying on track in climate-proofing the Netherlands”.
