The climate is changing. Wageningen University & Research studies the change, but also works on solutions, both in its causes and in mitigating the effects of climate change.
Global warming has caused a discernible effect on physical and biological systems. There are many examples of plant and animal species that have spread across the Netherlands or have withdrawn themselves. Risks of agricultural damage by flooding, drought and / or insect damage may increase. Also, effects of temperature increase are visible, for example in the city (heat island effect).
