Livelihood is the basis of a sustainable society and for human security. Access to food, water, shelter and employment are all part of a sustainable livelihood, while food insecurity, conflicts, droughts and climate change are all factors that risks instability. The security sector, in most contexts has a clear mandate to safeguard people’s safety and security, including acting as a deterrent agent when it comes to security threats. Development and humanitarian-focussed programming typically tends to overlook the security sector, due to multiple factors related to each context.

We have produced two Thematic in Practice Pages on the subject:
