Government Offices promote sustainable development, protect the environment and help rural areas. We make sure the policies of the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) are implemented and properly integrated with the work of other Government departments.

We work in partnership with the regional bodies and agencies to address the
future of farming and develop thriving rural economies and
communities. By implementing strategy, influencing policy
and designing programmes to achieve sustainable food and
farming sectors we can deliver a countryside for all to enjoy.
We also work across the region to coordinate and help deliver policy
relating to a range of environmental, climate change, energy related issues
and sustainable waste management.
