I have bought 2014 territory diesel TX which has no rear camera fitted.
Is there any wiring incorporated in vehicle to connect to central screen by fitting
Camera and coax cabling.

You may need to adapt a little to your vehicle specifics, but there's kits out there to assist.

It it a SZ or SZ II series? In any event, yes but you a) need the kit that incorporates the camera module and wiring harness (the SZ /SZII equivalent of this FORD TERRITORY SX SY SY2 TAILGATE REVERSE CAMERA WITH MODULE & WIRING LOOM | eBay and b) you need to program the command centre to turn it on (you can do this with Windows Notebook a ELM325 USB with a Ford Switch Modified ELM327 USB Ford Elmconfig MS-CAN HS-CAN Mazda Forscan OBD2 Chip Tool 625678147781 | eBay and Forscan for Windows see What's new ) . Likely the full kit is still available at your Ford dealer for a couple of arms and legs. If you have a monchrome screen you will also need to update the the colour touchscreen. It not easy, in fact is high risk, trying to graft a generic reversing camera into the Australian made Fords and trying to do so often results in a dead screen and or command centre. It can be done with an NTSC camera but at the very least you need to acquire and wire up a plug and pins that are compatible with the ICC reverse socket; Radio Spares/ RS Components sell though; them this:
JAE MX34 Series, 2 Row 12 Way Cable Mount Socket Housing RS Stock No. 690-9877
Mfr. Part No. MX34012SF1 Manufacturer JAE per MX34012SF1 | JAE MX34 Series, 2 Row 12 Way Cable Mount Socket Housing | RS Components . There some "plug and play" that have been proven and are good e.g.https://www.aslautomedia.com.au/territory-sz-reverse-camera but unlike with many other vehicles it is not a simple wire splicing job.

The Australian Falcon and Territory models don't like the cheap generic kits and trying to splice them is high risk as it often kills both their screens and command centers. It can be done but at the very least you need to acquire and wire up a plug and pins that is compatible with the ICC reverse socket. Radio Spares / RS Componnets sell them; this:
JAE MX34 Series, 2 Row 12 Way Cable Mount Socket Housing RS Stock No. 690-9877

The only ones know to work as a "plug and play" kit are the ones from ASL Automedia see CAMERA KITS and they are not particularly cheap. If you have a monchrome screen you will also probably need to update to the colour touchscreen.

Note the warning on the ASL Automedia Pages FORD FG MKII - MK2 REVERSE CAMERA etc "NOTE: WE SOMETIMES SEE THE TFT FAIL AFTER POWER IS DISCONNECTED FROM THE SCREEN DUE TO BATTERY REPLACEMENT OR ICC REMOVAL. THIS CAN ALSO OCCUR WITH A JUMP START OF THE VEHICLE. YOU MAY WISH TO TAKE THIS INTO ACCOUNT AND CHECK THIS BEFORE PURCHASING OUR KIT BUT PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THE TFT SCREEN MAY FAIL. THIS ISSUE IS EXPRESSLY NOT THE RESPONSIBILITY OF ASL AUTOMEDIA PTY LTD. "
