What is the advantage of setting up a Delta Fund?

The Delta Fund is the financial cornerstone of the Delta Programme. The fund was established in accordance with a recommendation made by the Veerman Committee. The Delta Fund went into effect on 1 January 2013.

It provides continuity and security regarding the available resources and eliminates the need to compete for funding. This makes it possible to schedule the necessary measures – for the long term as well – and to be certain that they can be implemented when needed. This is important because work on ensuring a safe and attractive delta will never come to an end.
