The Delta Plan on Flood Risk Management comprises all the Delta Programme studies, measures and provisions, scheduled or to be scheduled, pertaining to flood risk management. The measures are funded from the Delta Fund, and, in some cases, from the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment budget. Where appropriate, the Delta Plan on Flood Risk Management also features regional measures not subsidised by the central government.
Every year, the Delta Programme Commissioner submits a proposal for the Delta Programme, which includes the Delta Plans. The Delta Plans comprise studies, measures, and provisions in the fields of flood risk management, spatial adaptation, and freshwater supply in the Netherlands. The proposal contains a detailed schedule for the first six years and an indicative schedule for the subsequent twelve years. It looks ahead to 2050 (in accordance with Art. 4.9 paragraph 5 of the Water Act).
The Delta Plan on Flood Risk Management features diagrams and tables reflecting the progress, scheduling, planning, and phasing of the flood risk management projects. In addition, it provides information on the question of whether the implementation of the Delta Plan on Flood Risk Management is on schedule in accordance with the “Monitoring, Analysing, Acting” system.
