Work on energy efficiency has been carried out across several directorates in the Department over recent years. Following an internal reorganisation within the Department earlier in 2015, the Energy Efficiency Deployment Office no longer exists. The work it previously carried out is now undertaken in a number of different directorates, including those focused on home energy use and business and local energy use.</p> more like this

In particular we welcomed his proposal for six ‘essential elements’ as a way to communicate the agenda in an inspiring and concise way to citizens everywhere. We were also pleased to note his suggestion that the UN System conducts a technical review of the Sustainable Development Goal targets to ensure that they are as implementable as possible.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Since ISIL’s expansion in the summer of 2014, the Government of Iraq (GoI), with the support of the Global Counter-ISIL Coalition, including the UK, has succeeded in halting ISIL’s advance and pushing them out of a quarter of the territory they have captured. However, the security situation in Iraq remains concerning.</p><p>In central and western Iraq the Iraqi Security Forces (ISF), supported by Coalition airstrikes have generally succeeded in containing ISIL advances, and in places like Tikrit, retaken territory. On 17 May, however, ISIL captured the city of Ramadi in Anbar province. While this represents a symbolic and tactical advance for ISIL, we do not judge it to be strategically significant.</p><p>Some areas of Iraq, such as Mosul, remain under complete ISIL control whilst others like Fallujah and Baiji continue to be heavily contested.</p><p>In the north, the Kurdish Security Forces (KSF), supported by Coalition airstrikes, have recaptured territory, particularly around the Sinjar area, and continue to make incremental gains. The majority of southern Iraq remains calm.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Working for a stable and secure Afghanistan that is willing and able to counter terrorism remains a key objective for our work in Afghanistan. The UK played a leading role in the International Security Assistance Force mission. With NATO support, Afghan security forces now number around 330,000, the strongest in Afghan history. In January 2015 they assumed complete responsibility for the country’s security, a significant achievement and a tangible demonstration of the progress achieved to date. Recent well-publicised attacks have shown insurgent ambition to press for early impact following the announcement on 22 April of the start of their military campaign this year, in which they have declared Afghan Government and international institutions and civilian personnel as legitimate targets. We recognise and are ever mindful of the indiscriminate tragedy that this inflicts. Events have also illustrated the ability and determination of Afghan Defence and Security Forces to absorb pressure and to respond effectively. We expect this capability to broaden and to deepen as NATO’s Resolute Support Mission continues, of which the UK remains a key component.</p><p> </p><p>We are aware of reports claiming that Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant/Daesh have gained a foothold in Afghanistan and that they are seeking to consolidate this. Together with Afghan and international counterparts, we are monitoring the situation closely.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Ongoing instability and increased violence are a serious threat to Libya’s future. The wider region is threatened by the increasing presence of terrorist organisations and the facilitation of illegal migration. The UK is particularly concerned about the growing threat from extremist groups affiliated with ISIL in Libya. Only a stable and representative Government of National Accord (GNA) can deal with the political and security challenges Libya faces. I discussed this with visiting members of the House of Representatives and Libyan activists during my recent visit to Tunisia.</p><p>The UK remains fully committed to supporting the work of Special Representative of the Secretary General Leon to find a lasting political and security settlement in Libya. An agreement on a GNA is an essential first step to normalising Libya, and needs to be accompanied by a monitored ceasefire, withdrawal of armed groups from the cities and a comprehensive security plan.</p> more like this

star this property answer text The security situation in Nigeria remains of strong concern. It is estimated that 20,000 people have been killed, 1.5 million have been displaced and at least 3 million have been affected by the terrorist group Boko Haram. Recent efforts by Nigeria and its neighbours have seen the group pushed back. However, Boko Haram remains a potent threat and retains the ability to conduct attacks. President Buhari has made restoring security and prosperity to north east Nigeria a priority for his government. We look forward to working closely with him on this agenda. more like this
