What is the Human Security Approach and how does it apply to the United Nations, the Sustainable Development Goals, and the world in general?

Today’s world can be a difficult place for many. The challenges we face are complex and represent many forms of human insecurity, such as war, poverty, natural disasters, terrorism, diseases, and economic crises.

When insecurities overlap, they can grow exponentially, spilling into various aspects of people’s lives. This is where the Human Security Approach can make a difference. 

The United Nations System Staff College has launched a video with the Simpleshow Foundation to explain the concept in four minutes.
