Dictionary of Dutchness


The Deltaplan is the name given to the massive complex of dams, storm barriers and sluices built in the south of the country after the 1953 flood in which nearly 2,000 people died. Today the term is used by officials to describe any major effort to combat a potential disaster. So, the Deltaplan Inburgering aims to increase the integration of foreigners and the Deltaplan Gezinsvoogdij is to boost child protection.
