Basic idea of the Dutch water policy is room for water. For future river discharges, technical measures alone cannot guarantee the sustainable safety of the hinterland.

A combination of safety and nature should be realised by striking a balance between the strategies of conservation (Bird and Habitat Directive) and development (Water Framework Directive and national policy)
