Various reports and studies have been published in the field of vital and vulnerable functions. An overview is listed below.
The Delta Decision on Spatial Adaptation states that the national government is responsible for ensuring that the flood protection of national vital and vulnerable functions will have been improved by no later than 2050. The progress made with respect to achieving this goal is monitored annually. The results are outlined in the progress report. The following progress reports are currently available:
Third progress report (background document to Delta Programme 2018):
Approach to National Vital and Vulnerable Functions (third progress report) (pdf, 944 kB)
Second progress report (background document to Delta Programme 2017):
Approach to National Vital and Vulnerable Functions (second progress report) (pdf, 1.2 MB)
First progress report (background document to Delta Programme 2016):
Approach to National Vital and Vulnerable Functions (first progress report) (pdf, 1.4 MB)
The management reports are intended as internal policy documents, and consequently mainly focus on outlining the process. The progress reports, on the other hand, reflect the progress made in terms of content. As a rule, the management reports are published every fourth quarter. If you would like to receive the 2016 management report, please submit a request to this end to the Spatial Adaptation Knowledge Portal.
In order to adequately substantiate the “Analysis” step for the different functions, various studies are being or have been conducted into the vulnerabilities of the different functions and their inter-dependencies.
