The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) addresses climate change alongside the challenge of energy security. The major costs arise from programme funding and staff salaries. In the 2010-11 financial year (the most recent period for which verified figures are currently available), the FCO spent £30,973,577 on activities related to climate change and energy security. This figure takes into account programme funding, staff costs relating to officials (of whom there are approximately hundred in the UK and overseas) and travel, subsistence and allowances.
