Abstract:This bachelor thesis will provide an answer to the research question ‘’how do different institutional levels manage flooding of transboundary rivers in the Dutch-German border area?’’. The research question is answered via the analysis of policy documents of the EU Floods Directive, the Dutch Water Act and the German Federal Water Act. Together with several research rapports within the field of flood risk management a theoretical framework has been set up. Via the analysis the conclusion became that both Germany and the Netherlands work together within a multilevel system. On an international level, several commissions have been set up. The International Commission for the Protection of the Rhine and the International Meuse Commission ensure the flood risk management of the Rhine and the Meuse on an international level, and for the Ems, the Netherlands and Germany work closely together on national level. On regional level, the regulation of flood risk management of smaller river basins as Dinkel,Vecht, Berkel and Oude Ijsssel is getting regulated via the German-Dutch organisation Grensoverschrijdend Platform voor Regionaal Waterbeheer.
