Soil moisture-based irrigation is a tool to reduce the demand for irrigation water by giving the user insight into the current soil moisture condition. There is an increasing demand for water to irrigate agricultural crops, as well as for irrigating pastures, arboriculture, gardens, parks, sports fields and golf courses, especially in warm, dry periods. At the same time the demand increases in other sectors, such as for maintaining water levels, cooling water, cold drinks and swimming pools. In addition, the discharge of the large rivers is low which also requires more fresh water in order to combat salinity and for maintaining sufficient water-depth for navigation. This scarcity of water is already a fact during dry summers and the frequency of this occurring will increase due to climate change. It has been shown that more water is used for agricultural irrigation when the user does not have any insight into the actual moisture condition of the soil.

The multi-layer safety approach focuses on flood risk reduction through three types of measures: 1 prevention through dikes, levees and dams , 2 a flood resilient spatial planning and 3 an adequate crisis management. Whereas the official Dutch policy propagates the multi-level safety approach, the current Dutch water safety policy is still focused on prevention only layer 1.
