The Department for International Development does not publish the numbers of staff in each country where we operate, as this may represent a security risk, especially to our staff serving in hostile environments or fragile states.

However, as at 31 October 2010, 410 UK home civil servant staff, plus 760 staff appointed in country, were based in 55 countries overseas. In the UK, 742 UK home civil servant staff were based in England, and 479 were based in Scotland. No staff were based in Wales or Northern Ireland.
