The Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s (FCO) departmental policy programme budget is branded internally as the Global Britain Fund. Projects under this banner provide short-term support for small-scale tactical interventions to enable wider foreign policy objectives. Progress against FCO country or thematic strategies is evaluated at the mid and end of year points through the FCO’s internal business planning process. Performance of individual projects against their original objectives is reviewed annually and at a mid-year point. Additional information on the objectives of our foreign policy programmes is published on gov.uk. ​
