FCO in Action
From tackling international terrorism to promoting a low carbon economy, we're working around the world through our global network of embassies and diplomatic posts to support the UK's interests in a challenging world.
We've pinned up case study examples of our work from around the world onto our interactive Google map.
The FCO's strategy sets out the goals and services that shape our work around the world.
Our network of 260 embassies and diplomatic posts in 145 countries is a platform for UK Government and the UK's 14 Overseas Territories.
Our aim is to reduce the risk from international terrorism, so that people can go about their daily lives freely and with confidence.
Climate change is not just an environmental challenge - it is a threat to the global economy and global security. That's why we're working to shift the global economy to low carbon.
Our staff are working around the world to stabilise conflict and to tackle the causes of conflict by promoting and developing human rights, democracy, law and good governance.
Our goal is to promote a global shift to secure, low carbon energy in a competitive global economy.
We're working to promote international systems that can meet the opportunities and challenges of our globalised world.
We're working through UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) to promote British business around the world and to attract inward investment.
From lost passports to natural disasters - our staff help thousands of Britons every year all over the world.
We're working with UK and overseas partners to manage migration to the UK.
