The city of Rotterdam is situated in Maas delta and symbolised by the famous Erasmus Bridge. Rotterdam is therefore ideally suited as the meeting place to discuss flood risk management.

The Maas River defines the face of Rotterdam today, as a main waterway and as an attraction in its own right. More and more restaurants and other entertainment venues are springing up along the waterfront. The river is what divides the north and south sides of the city, linked by high-speed ferry boats and bridges that define the skyline. In the short time since its construction, the Erasmus Bridge has become the iconic symbol of Rotterdam. The bridge is named after Rotterdam’s most famous son, the humanist philosopher Desiderius Erasmus.
