A study by the Global Commission on the Economy and Climate, issued in 2016, which is co-chaired by  climate economist Lord Nicholas Stern, found that the world is expected to invest about $90trillion  in infrastructure over the next 15 years, requiring a shift to ensure that this money is spent on low-carbon, energy-efficient projects as “the window for making the right choices is narrow and closing fast”.  At a EU Commission workshop on July 5, 2017 on Technology Cooperation and the Paris COP 20 Agreement this sense of urgency was ventilated as the EU is struggling to transfer the results of its investments in climate technologies to emerging economies where emission reduction potential is huge and markets virgin. The Green Climate Fund on the same day deliberated its project pipeline comprised of 58 public‐ and private projects that it co-funds (€3,3 bln) of which less than 2%  are transport projects. The EU Commission announced a Horizon call for collaboration in 2018 for climate services through African universities. The EHA is leveraging its membership of the UNFCCC Climate Centre and Network to push EU FCH technologies to the corners of the world where emission reduction impact is the biggest.  The EHA facilitated the first Technology Assistance request of Brazil to the UNFCCC Climate Technology Centre and Network. This request is dealing exclusively with building a first FCH cluster of activities, one of which the organisation of the WHEC2018 in Rio de Janeiro form June 17-22 2018, to develop the first larger FCH projects and programs.
