Politics for the improvement of flood protection

Politics

Productive flood protection requires an enlightened population in order to avoid any loss of human life in an emergency. Politics represents the interests of the citizens and is therefore a reflection of society (dis)interest. It must therefore be welcomed that a great deal has been set in motion in recent years with respect to flood protection. Both the water framework directive and the flood management directive form a forward-looking legal framework to reduce the risk of flooding both locally and all over Europe.
