We will maintain a team of around 140-150 officials in the COP Unit.

The Unit will continue to work closely with other government departments to ensure we build on and secure the legacy of our COP Presidency and the UK’s international reputation as a climate leader.

The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office’s diplomatic network will remain essential to our international efforts, as will leadership from other government departments.
