The province therefore not only must ensure that the people of Brabant don’t get their feet wet, for example, but also that there is an adequate supply of potable water and that wildlife areas do not dry out.
This naturally goes hand in hand with economic and ecological developments.
Cooperation with other parties: provincial water plan
Water management and policy in the Netherlands have changed in recent years. Conflicts can arise as a result of differences in interests, and technical solutions alone are no longer enough. In terms of implementation, it is important for the province to work together with other parties and ensure an alignment with other policy fields. The increasing influence of European policy on regional water policy is also important. The province describes this integral approach in the provincial water plan. With this plan, the province will help turn new insights into a practical approach.
