Mapping meteorological technopolitics: unveiling intersections for global climate science and policies  
Jean Carlos Hochsprung Miguel (University of Campinas)

Long abstract:

WMO conducts operations across 6 regions through the WMO Regional Associations, utilizing the efforts of their subsidiary bodies to implement specific outputs and activities at the regional level. These organizations play a crucial role in coordinating meteorological, hydrological, climatological, and related activities among their Members, with additional support from the WMO Regional and Representative Offices.

Despite these operational efforts, critical aspects such as institutional arrangements, research networks, and the intersection of climate science and policy remain largely unexplored in most of these regions. Recognizing the imperative to make climate science beneficial to society, the WMO currently lacks a comprehensive map of what can be termed "technopolitical territories of meteorology."

This research seeks to address this gap by presenting a detailed mapping of such territories in Brazil. By doing so, it aims to shed light on the intricate relationships and interfaces between meteorological science and policy, emphasizing the crucial role that Science and Technology Studies (STS) can play in offering valuable insights and contributions to the global discourse on climate sciences and policies.
