Between 29-31 October 2013 at the University of Campinas, Brazil the UNIDO organised the 6th Hydro Power for Today Forum & 3rd Technical Workshop of the Observatory High-level Congress and Workshop, which was attended by around 200 delegates. During this Forum, UNIDO has launched the WORLD SHP Report. Its European contribution was based on the findings of the European SHP Roadmap, co-financed through IEE’s STREAM MAP project, which have been also mentioned in this UN publication. UNIDO, Ministry officials and large delegations from Latin America and China did listen to the key note speech, Martina Steinkusz gave to around 200 delegates that focused on the ‘Trends, Challenges and Solutions in the Development of SHP in the EU’. Especially the part on RESTOR Hydro gave impetus the attendees who are currently in the development of similar SHP financing solutions.
