UAE To Share Expertise in Cloud Seeding in COP27 Egypt

National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) today announced its participation in the upcoming United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP27) as part of the UAE’s official delegation to the event that will run from 6th to 18th November in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt.

The Centre will particularly share its pioneering expertise in advancing rain enhancement science and technology.

At COP27, NCM will announce the targeted research areas identified by the Fifth Cycle of the UAE Research Programme for Rain Enhancement Science (UAEREP) in preparation for the Cycle’s official launch on the sidelines of the 6th International Rain Enhancement Forum in January 2023 in Abu Dhabi.

The NCM team will also hold a series of meetings with key officials and experts in rain enhancement research to demonstrate its potential in achieving global water security.

To monitor climatic conditions around the clock, the NCM has built up an advanced national network of radars and automatic weather stations supervised by experts in weather forecasting and meteorological information. The Centre is also active in educating the members of the society about atmospheric phenomena and climate changes.
