For the purpose of realizing the national strategy for water security in the country, the initiatives of H.H. the President of the UAE worked on the construction of a series of dams and water barriers in order to conserve rainwater and to protect the properties of citizens living near the valleys in the central region and the East coast of the country, where farmers have benefited from these dams in many areas.

These dams and barriers included Wadi Kob, Wadi Al-Aim, Asfani, and Mamdouh. While the water breakers were found in Al-Dhaid and Wadi Al-Maniei.
