Livestock Emergency Guidelines and Standards (LEGS): Second Edition

Livestock Emergency Guidelines and Standards (LEGS): Second Edition

Summary

Livestock Emergency Guidelines and Standards (LEGS) is a set of international guidelines and standards for designing, implementing, and evaluating livestock interventions to help people affected by humanitarian crises. LEGS is based on three livelihoods objectives: to provide rapid assistance, to protect livestock assets, and to rebuild the livestock assets of crisis-affected communities.

LEGS supports the saving of both lives and livelihoods through two key strategies:

  • LEGS helps identify the most appropriate livestock interventions during emergencies.
  • LEGS provides Standards, Key actions, and Guidance notes for these interventions based on good practice

 

Who should use LEGS?

LEGS can be used by anyone who is involved in livestock-related projects in emergencies. In particular:
  • LEGS is aimed at people who provide emergency assistance in areas where livestock make an important contribution to human livelihoods; that is, aid organizations, bi- and multilateral agencies, and governments. 
  • LEGS is also relevant to policy and decision-makers in donor and government agencies whose funding and implementation decisions affect emergency response. 
  • A third audience for LEGS includes educational institutions and community-based organizations.
