Policy Priorities

The UK has taken on the Presidency of the G7 at a critical time for the world, and as we prepare to host the COP26 UN Climate Conference in November.

With new vaccines offering a way to end the pandemic, we are using our G7 Presidency to fight and build back better from coronavirus by:

  • leading the global recovery from coronavirus while strengthening our resilience against future pandemics
  • promoting our future prosperity by championing free and fair trade
  • tackling climate change and preserving the planet’s biodiversity
  • championing our shared values

Our global recovery must spread wealth to all regions. With a collective approach to using new technologies, by strengthening the international trading system and by supporting a green recovery, we will create decent, lasting jobs across our nations.

We will create a stronger global health system that can protect us all from future pandemics. Tackling coronavirus has been the biggest shared endeavour of our lifetimes, and the global effort to develop new vaccines and treatments for coronavirus has shown what we can achieve by working together.

As the world recovers from the pandemic, we also face a tipping point for our climate and natural environment. We will protect the future of our planet by moving to net zero and providing financial support for developing countries to do the same. By protecting 30% of our land and of our ocean by 2030 we will look after our natural environment for future generations.

As we recover, we must champion our values and support the poorest nations to grow alongside us. We will promote global development and democracy, supporting girls’ education, food security, health and sustainable development financing.
