The Netherlands (TUDCI)

Problem: climate change is severe, and our mitigation policies might not be (and likely are not) enough to stay below 2 C of warming.
Potential solution: we must develop other options as well – not as a solution, but as an intermediary cooling method in case we need it. We need to develop more tools for our toolbox.
Vision: TUDCI is working closely with the CCR on MCB. Outstanding questions include: is there full evidence to suggest that MCB works (including modelling, observations of natural analogues, field trials)? Do we have a good understanding of the regional differences which might arise in aspects such as rainfall? The distribution curves generated by the Cambridge droplet generators will help us finetune our models and field trials.
