Senior managers and Heads of Geological Survey Organizations (GSOs) from around the world have contributed a collection of papers to provide a benchmark on how GSOs are responding to national and international needs in a rapidly changing world.  GSOs continue to provide key scientific information about Earth systems, natural hazards and climate change.  As countries adopt sustainable development principles and the public increasingly turns to social media to find information about resource and environmental issues, the generation and communication of Earth science knowledge become increasingly important.  This volume provides a snapshot of how GSOs are adapting their activities to this changing world.  The different national perspectives presented converge around several common themes related to resources, environment and big data.   Climate change and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals provide an increased incentive for GSOs of the world to work in harmony, to generate knowledge of Earth systems and to provide solutions for sustainable management of the planet.
