Defra has taken a number of steps to ensure it has strong risk and programme management foundations in place and will continue to assess and manage these as appropriate.

It is not government policy to publish departmental risk registers given the inherent risks involved.

More information about our risk management approach can be found in Chapter 4 of Defra’s annual report and accounts 2017 to 2018, which is available here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/defras-annual-report-and-accounts-2017-to-2018. The risk section is specifically on pages 32-36.
