Rain project at ‘crit­i­cal pe­riod’

7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

The UAE’s rain en­hance­ment project has been dis­cussed at COP22 in Morocco as global en­vi­ron­ment lead­ers come to­gether. Mo­hammed Al Mheiri, Head of Me­dia and Mar­ket­ing, was among the del­e­gates and said the coun­try’s ef­forts to in­crease the amount of rain­fall are at a “crit­i­cal pe­riod”. Along with cloud seed­ing flights, the UAE is of­fer­ing scientists mil­lions in grants to make their rain the­o­ries a re­al­ity. Al Mheiri said at the con­fer­ence: “We are at a crit­i­cal mo­ment in time. “Through deeper in­ter­na­tional co­op­er­a­tion in science and tech­nol­ogy, we want to build vi­able al­ter­na­tives and serve fu­ture gen­er­a­tions.”
