      Great work. The school of architecture has a research grant to assist in building a new primary school in Uganda. Professor Garrison and 7 graduate students visited Uganda in July to start the building process. We were asked by Ugandan architects why would students come to Africa to build in a region with such a low environmental footprint. The students replied we are learning how to build in Africa where the is such a need for schools in a local construction system that has a low environmental footprint and in so doing we learn how we can also build in North America with a lower environmental footprint.

      The CCAPS program is very interesting. It is giving the LBJ opportunities to travel to different countries in Africa, interact with policy makers, ordinary people, NGO. This ensures that evidence research is collected. Covering different countries and regions ensures that geographical, cultural and political differences are covered. I look forward to the outcome of research on climate change and the urban areas in Africa.
