The Freshwater Delta Decision, which is part of the Delta Programme, was drafted to ensure that adequate supplies of freshwater will continue to be available, now and in the future, for essential services such as drinking water and agriculture. Deltares provided the quantitative basis for the scenarios in the Freshwater Sub-Programme, which drafted the Delta Decision. We also identified promising solutions by describing the impact of measures on water supplies, water allocation and water demand.
