Future Earth’ was officially announced at the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) in 2012, and a permanent secretariat was set up in 2015. Future Earth is a global initiative aiming to create a sustainable and equitable world for all people. It uses a transdisciplinary research and system thinking approach in which basic and applied research are combined to produce knowledge that can be used to make decisions by practitioners and policymakers at all levels of governance. It works closely with the National and the International Science Academies and Society in advancing knowledge. Between 2021 and 2022, Future Earth underwent a transformation to become a more effective and inclusive organisation. At the moment, the day-to-day operations of Future Earth are facilitated by a well-distributed network of nine newly established Global Secretariat Hubs located in Africa, Canada, China, France, Japan, South Asia (hosted by the Indian Institute of Science), Sweden, Taipei, and the United States. Future Earth is a research program and the Secretariat aids in knowledge advancement through its various science communication products that are presented as policy briefs to head of states at various international forums. © 2022,Current Science.
