Abstract The main objective of these guidelines is to promote the use of floodplains as natural flood defence measures, while at the same time optimising other compatible functions and values through conservation and restoration. It is intended that these guidelines will be used as a tool primarily by policy-makers and decision-makers who are aware of the potential advantages of floodplain restoration and management in the role of flood control, but may benefit from comprehensive guidance on assessing, initiating, funding and carrying-out such schemes as well as information on the other functions floodplains can perform. It is also intended that they will be an accessible source of information for a wide range of stakeholders with an interest in floodplain management. Case studies are provided to illustrate the wide range of schemes that can be carried out and the degrees of success that have been achieved. Case studies from the Netherlands are: 1. Meinerswijk, Rhine; 2. Zandmaas and Grensmaas, Meuse; 3. Gamerensche Waard, Lower Rhine; 4. Afferdensche en Deestsche Waarden, Lower Rhine
