The chairman of the Dutch National Climate Research Program, Professor Kabat has been a pioneer in climate research for 25 years and is a key player in developing the radical approach that has challenged the Dutch public to seize opportunities presented by climate change.

I think that swap in attitude – from threat to opportunity – took on board a lot of private business interest immediately.”
