Welcome to the Falkland Islands Government

The Falkland Islands is a self-sufficient country with a long history and unique culture. The people of the Falkland Islands have the right to self-determination, enshrined in international law.

The Falkland Islands Government is far from just an administration. It provides a diversity of services to support our thriving community. From provision of power and fresh drinking water, to building roads or carrying out scientific fisheries research, the Falkland Islands Government fulfills a variety of roles that make it the largest employer in the Islands.

The civil service is headed up by the Chief Executive, and divided into a number of Directorates. The heads of these Directorates form the Corporate Management Team, and are supported by a number of specialist Heads of Service. These Directorates contain numerous departments, functions and responsibilities of which the services can be found on this website.

We are currently developing our dedicated website across government and more departments will be available soon.
