Flood Risk

Rising sea-levels, population growth and economic activity are driving an increase in demand for flood risk forecasting and possible protective measures.

The research conducted by Deltares improves the precision of our assessments of dike strength, water-level predictions, wave heights and erosion, and allows for better risk appraisal. Our expertise covers the full scope of flood risk management: from risk calculations to practical support for making policy decisions. The result is seen in flood prevention measures that are more effective, more cost-efficient and socially acceptable.
