Our 2018–20 strategy provides a framework for our work in, for and with the UK. It builds on and consolidates decades of work in some areas and gives a clear focus to newer ambitions in others. The strategy takes account of a global context of exponential change in all spheres of life – technology, economics, demographics, society and climate – and a transitional situation in the UK. Wider global trends will continue to occur as the UK repositions itself in the international arena and, at the same time, devolved systems of government follow diverse approaches and priorities across the nations, cities and city regions of the UK.
