Prepared as a guide for practitioners who wish to integrate the added value of the human security approach into their work, this handbook provides an overview of the human security concept and its operational impact. Useful tools for applying the human security concept, including a step-by step strategy for developing, implementing and evaluating human security programme/projects are provided. Two detailed case studies; one in post-conflict situations and another related to food insecure scenarios, demonstrate the application of these human security tools and are followed with additional examples of projects supported under the United Nations Trust Fund for Human Security. This handbook assumes prior knowledge in programme/project management methods, such as Results Based Management (RBM) as well as logical framework analysis, and will be accompanied by a series of trainings for UN agencies, field staff and other stakeholders. The handbook can be downloaded from the website of OCHA via the link below.
