Cross-cutting issues are those which have a fundamental effect on citizens’ sense of well-being, yet continue to defy the actions of governments and others to address them. In part this is due to their nature. Issues such as environmental sustainability, fear of crime and social exclusion require concerted action by numerous actors from across the public, private, voluntary and community sectors. They cannot be tackled successfully by a single agency, nor will disjointed action have any real effect. Collaboration therefore has become the accepted mechanism for implementing public policy on cross-cutting issues.
