Cross-cutting issues are identified as topics that affect and cut across most or all aspects of sustainable development. These topics are encouraged to be integrated and mainstreamed throughout the whole process of development, such as design, implementation and evaluation.

To encourage national and local communities to adopt a cross-cutting lens throughout its development policies, CIFAL Jeju/JITC provides a diverse array of related training programs including peace and security, gender equality, global partnerships and more. As a subsidiary organ of the Jeju's International Peace Foundation(IPF), CIFAL Jeju/JITC is committed to emphasize the promotion of peaceful, secure and inclusive societies for sustainable development through our workshops.
