The UAE Programme for Rain Enhancement Science


The UAE Programme for Rain Enhancement Science is an international research initiative designed to advance the science and technology of rain enhancement by offering managed grant assistance to selected teams of researchers.

The Programme is managed by the National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS) as part of its mission to support research in weather modification. In its second cycle, the UAE Research Programme for Rain Enhancement Science has witnessed a widened geographical participation - receiving 91 pre-proposals, representing 398 scientists and researchers affiliated to 180 institutes from 45 countries. The programme will announce up to five projects as recipients of a total grant of US$5 million to be awarded over a three-year period at a ceremony during the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week in January 2017.
