To help deliver a successful COP26, climate diplomacy is at the centre of the work of the whole FCDO diplomatic network and a priority for the Foreign Secretary's engagement. FCDO Ministers regularly raise climate issues in a range of meetings, including bilateral engagements, negotiations and multilateral summits. This year the former Foreign Secretary discussed climate in more than 100 engagements with counterparts across the world - this includes recently at September's UN General Assembly.
