Collecting knowledge on climate change for the production of teaching materials and training

Final Report (January 31st, 2023)

The OIMC publicizes the final report of the survey “Collecting knowledge on climate change for the production of teaching materials and training”, conducted by our team during the month of August 2022 with a target audience belonging to three segments: Friedrich Ebert Foundation (FES) and its partners (ABONGCUTMST and Peregum); community of teachers, students and administrative staff of the State University of Rio de Janeiro (UERJ) and the Municipal Forum on Climate Change of Niterói (FMMC Niterói). The document was developed from the analysis of 488 answers to a questionnaire on the subject, structured by the researchers in cooperation with partner organizations.

Content analysis of official foreign policy speeches (ACPOLEX)

Danielle Costa da Silva and Beatriz Triani (July 25th, 2020)

We started to build the database of official speeches by Brazilian authorities, mainly presidents, in 2012, and have since then constantly updated it according to the succession of presidents and the years of government. All speeches by ex-presidents are available on the website of the Library of the Presidency of the Republic, having been downloaded, organized and inserted in the speech bank of this project. Currently, the speech bank covers from José Sarney until the first year of Jair Bolsonaros government (2019).

Brazilian and world-wide interdisciplinary research centers and networks on climate change

List updated on April 11, 2021

The centers, networks, observatories, and research programs included in this list were selected based on the following criteria:

  • They conduct interdisciplinary (or transdisciplinary, in some rarer cases) research on climate change.
  • They promote communication and dialogue activities between the world of science and the field of public policy at all levels (local, national, regional, and global).
  • They are in favor of the design of public policies to face the harmful effects and causes that generate the problem of global climate change, that is, they do not adopt or disclose denialism and contrarian attitudes as to the role of science in the debate on climate change. This does not mean that they cannot take on critical positions in relation to the world of science and the field of public policies, or even in relation to the role of private and non-governmental actors in matters of climate change.

The centers, networks, observatories, and programs are presented according to geographic divisions and, within each region or country, in alphabetical order.
