Using technology to make it rain

By 2025, two-thirds of the world’s population may face water shortages. From adjusting the weather to pulling water from thin air, innovative technology is being used to help find a sustainable supply of drinking water for the world.

Dubai is located in one of the most arid regions in the world. The city’s growing population is increasing water demand and fuelling the development of new water-sourcing technologies. One of the most unique kinds of technology being developed is for cloud seeding.

What is cloud seeding?

Cloud seeding is a weather modification technique that improves a cloud’s ability to produce rain.
