The Netherlands is a low-lying country with an abundance of water, i.e. the sea, the IJsselmeer and major rivers. Such an area is referred to as a “delta”. The Delta Programme is in place to protect the Netherlands from flooding and to ensure a sufficient supply of fresh water. The Delta Commissioner, a special government commissioner, is in charge of the Delta Programme.
