star this property answer text <p>​Tackling climate change in collaboration with international partners is a high priority of this government, as evidenced most recently by the Prime Minister's recent commitment to double the UK's International Climate Finance funding to at least £11.6 billion between 2021/22 and 2025/26. Strong diplomatic engagement lies at the heart of the whole-of-government efforts required to tackle climate change, and Climate Change and Energy (CCE) work is a network-wide priority. Every Head of Mission in our global network has climate change diplomacy as a personal priority, and a priority for their Post.</p><p>As the first G7 country to legislate for net zero by 2050, the UK is leading the world's response to tackling climate change. Our position at the forefront of international efforts to tackle climate change will be consolidated through hosting COP26 in Glasgow next year in partnership with Italy.</p> more like this

Heads of Mission and Defence Attaché positions require the UK's express agreement prior to arriving. This process confirms, or otherwise, the acceptability of a Head of Mission or a Defence Attaché. Comparable arrangements are in place for consular staff appointed to the UK under the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations (VCCR), under which HMG requires prior agreement for Heads of consular posts.</p> more like this
