What is the benefit of establishing a Delta Fund?

The Delta Fund is the financial cornerstone of the Delta Programme. It was established in line with a recommendation made by the Delta Commission. The Delta Fund went into effect on 1 January 2013.

It provides continuity and stability with respect to the available resources, eliminating the need to compete for funding. This makes it possible to schedule the necessary measures – for the long term as well – and it provides the assurance that they can be implemented when necessary. This is important because there will always be work to be done on a safe and appealing delta.
