With the perspective of global pandemic, the chapter looks at the developmental issues through a systematic review of current literature on seven mainstream human security indicators: health, economy, food, education, environment, personal, community, and political security. After conceptualising the pandemic’s contribution towards sustainability and human security, the chapter presents illustrative questions in the discussion section to understand the application of the human security concepts in practice. The pandemic has affected the key basic SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) related to health, income, food, education, environment, and others, and affected the community as a whole as well, through aggravated physical and psychological stress at the community level. Evidently, the SDGs and other global developmental agenda have faced a setback since 2019 due to the deep and systematic negative consequences of the current pandemic. How can nations, in these circumstances, remove systemic inequality and prioritise growth? In the chapter, we raise some questions for discussion on how to alleviate the impacts and put the world on track towards development.
