Pakistan: Balochistan approves cloud seeding project for drought-hit areas

By Saleem Shahid


In a bid to overcome drought in some districts of the province, the Balochistan government has decided to use cloud seeding and artificial rain technology, a practice successfully used in drought-hit regions of the world.
Initially, the project will cater to needs of an area of 10,000 square kilometres in Gwadar district, where the catchment of four dams is located.


The company has successfully tested artificial rain in the Gulf and Iran. The cabinet approved the project and directed environment and irrigation departments to constitute a committee which would visit Dubai to assess the artificial rain technology.
