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.
