Security can no longer be solely concerned with national or military security. It must encompass all aspects of human wellbeing – health, food, employment, living standards, education, public confidence and social tolerance. Human Security is a broad conceptual approach applicable to all areas of development policy. Such an integrated approach can accelerate positive action to address threats such as pandemics and climate change, to coordinate and accelerate the implementation of the SDGs, and to enhance multilateral cooperation.

What does human security mean to you?:

“Human security is a process that can and should be applied to enhance implementation of all socially-endorsed goals related to human rights and human development.”

Human Security is all about placing humans at the center of development. It is a unifying theme and force that serves as a core frame of reference to enhance the effectiveness of a wide range of high priority social objectives. Human Security must be established as a universal benchmark for effective development strategies in future.
