AutoPot caught the eye of Christine Lagarde, Director of the IMF, during her recent visit to Masdar, the UAE’s city for sustainable and renewable energy. Ms. Lagarde approached the stand of NABTA Agri, AutoPot’s UAE Distributor, and showed a great deal of interest in the principles and proven power of our watering systems.

It’s thanks to the dynamic and tireless work of NABTA Agri that our technology has come to the attention of those regional and international organisations dedicated to a sustainable future. In order to introduce AutoPot to the Emirates NABTA first developed some exemplary working showrooms for the enlightenment of public and commercial growers alike. A keen appreciation of government strategies for green tech and horticulture then led NABTA to produce tailored proposals that integrate AutoPot Watering Systems with government housing projects.

To further these plans NABTA recently welcomed Dr. Thani Alzyodi, UAE Minister of Climate Change and the Environment, to their farm and showrooms. Whilst enjoying a guided tour Dr. Alzyodi and NABTA Director Jamal discussed the compatibility of AutoPot Watering Systems with the goals of the UAE’s community agriculture decree. That decree was issued by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of the Emirate of Dubai. The Sheikh is yet another recent, high profile visitor to NABTA’s AutoPot greenhouse, indicating that Jamal’s work truly is catching the imagination.

Few places on earth are better poised to embrace such visionary ideas. The UAE is a nexus in the development of sustainable technology. Vision, wealth, science, necessity and political drive all converge and feed into grand designs for green-future strategies. This makes it the perfect proving ground for us. Under NABTA’s inspired supervision our systems have been thriving in the UAE for years. Unmoved by the extreme climate the AutoPots have simply kept on growing whilst wasting zero water and requiring zero power

Whilst the UAE is deemed to be “food secure”, thanks to its economic and political stability, it nonetheless imports 90% of it’s food. Moves to change this are driven by separate and distinct motivations. The UAE wants to diversify, wants to become a leader in green tech and wants to produce food domestically. Regardless of motivation, the effect is a concerted and positive push towards a sustainable future in which we’re keen to participate.
