What is the ENW?

The Expertise Network for Flood Protection (ENW) is a platform bringing together specialists in the area of flood protection.

In short, the objective of the ENW is to combine knowledge within the network on the subject of flood protection and to use this knowledge to advise government bodies with a role in flood protection. The activities of the ENW are a continuation of the work done by the Technical Advisory committee for Flood Defence (TAW).

The ENW focuses on expertise for flood protection in its widest sense. Its activities cover both physical water management and social aspects, both for primary and regional flood defence systems.

To meet its objectives

To meet its objectives, ENW has the following functions:

  • Quality assurance for research, knowledge development and policy development;
  • Providing advice on flood protection.
