The Netherlands is a low-lying country with an abundance of water. The Delta Programme is in place to protect the Netherlands from flooding, to ensure a sufficient supply of freshwater, and to help ensure climate-proof and water-resilient spatial planning in the Netherlands.

The online version of the eighth Delta Programme, “Continuing the work on a sustainable and safe delta”, sets out the progress made in the work on the delta: the (statutory) elaboration and the implementation of the Delta Decisions and preferential strategies.
