September 3, 2008 the Deltacommittee presented her advice to the Dutch Cabinet. The complete translation will follow soon.

 The following elements are guiding the committee in the advice.

1Moral choices (do we remain collectively responsible for water safety; how do we define safety levels in relation to people, economy, environment)

2Aspirations (the Netherlands retains its attractive living environment, sustainability as a guiding principle, availability of quality of surface and drinking water)

3Implementation processes (safety as a central objective, integrated and multifunctional solutions, flexibility)
