Details This paper discusses how development thinking around threats and consequent crises—sudden sharp or severe disruptions in development paths—has in various ways often been inhibited and inadequate. It outlines how human security thinking can help counteract these weaknesses, at various levels, from providing a broad orientation through to some particular tools in research and planning. It sets the discussion in terms of required transitions within the era of the Anthropocene, during which threats and consequent crises can be expected to grow. Crises of various sorts appear inevitable and even necessary drivers for transition and must be used as windows of opportunity for change.
