Dutch Delta Congress

The Delta Programme Commissioner initiates an annual national Delta Congress for everyone involved – in a professional capacity – in the (implementation of) the national Delta Programme. Due to the restrictive measures to combat the COVID-19 virus, Delta Congress 2021 will take place in a hybrid format. Most of the participants will follow the conference online. Some will physically attend, such as guest speakers in the plenary sessions and the workshops. 

The twelfth national Delta Congress will be held on Thursday, 11 November 2021. It will be broadcast live from the MECC Maastricht conference centre. 

Some topics on the agenda: 

Climate-adaptive and nature-inclusive construction; 

  • Drought; 
  • Sustainable implementation of flood protection projects; 
  • The state of affairs in the Sea Level Rise Knowledge Programme. 

The Delta Congress will also reach out to students, pupils, and young professionals, as it has in previous years.
