2012 Academic of the year Award

“I’m honoured and deeply grateful to be receiving this award from CUFA BC. My work is very special to me because I believe I’m giving hope, not only to the people in Uganda, but people around the world. I also talk to youth and communities in Prince George about water management in Uganda and they are able to see how they can better manage their own water resources here in Canada.  They understand that global connection.” – Dr. Chris Opio.  Read the article UNBC wrote about Dr. Opio
