The human security concept emerged as a result of contemporary global developments that triggered the manifestation of risks threatening the safety, survival and welfare of human beings and the environment, but which were not classified as security risks per ser. As such, there became a need to widen the scope and meaning of security by shifting attention and resources away from state protection concerns towards other emerging areas important to human survival and well being. The UNDP crafted human security concept which expanded security to include, political, food, economic, environmental, community and personal security as arms of security. This concept used other socially useful aspects in human life to identify the numerous threats to day to day survival for people and their communities.
