The German company has built four cloud ionization towers in Jordan.

Jordan is one of the four driest countries in the world, and climate scientists believe rainfall in the region could decline significantly by the end of the century.

But the country is already so dry that it is turning to technology to boost rainfall. German rainfall technology company, WeatherTec, is teaming up with environmental consultancy, Al Qudrah, to try to solve the problem.
