$30.18 + tax (Refund Policy)

International development discourse emphasises collaboration, partnerships and cross-sectoral approaches, but to what extent is cross-sector policy implemented in practice? This article presents findings from research into cross-sector policy implementation at the Department for International Development (DFID) in the UK and Nepal. Discussion focuses on examining and explaining the contradictory nature of the data gathered and a possible model of cross-sectoral engagement is presented in response to the findings. In conclusion, DFID was found to have made some significant attempts to implement cross-sectoral policies but, for a number of reasons, DFID's cross-sector policies have not been fully implemented.
