Using the coastal or riverine areas next to the flood defenses may bring benefits beyond flood risk reduction but also several legal questions. Some of these questions were addressed into a decision tool that is part of the foreland guideline. ‘H.6 Juridische Borging’ (p. 82-89) bijdrage in: N. Roode, B. Maaskant & M. Boon, Voorlanden.

Innovative components

This study focuses on the questions of: (1) how flood defense managers can manage the forelands adjacent to the flood defenses in their management in such a way that they make an optimal contribution to flood risk management. (2) What is the probability that disadvantage compensation should be paid in the context of decisions on the management of forelands? Both questions cannot be answered in general and/or unambiguously. It depends on the specific wishes of the manager and the (other) concrete circumstances of the case. This research contributes to the creation of a decision scheme to arrive at the “best decision in the given circumstances”.

Kroniek aansprakelijkheid en schadevergoeding in het waterbeheer

Damage claims and water management are therefore inextricably linked. Both liability and compensation as a result of an unlawful and a lawful act are discussed. We will also indicate for each sub-topic which changes will be brought about by the Environmental Act, the entry into force of which is still envisaged on 1 January 2021.
