Livestock Emergency Guidelines and Standards: Second Edition

2014 — By Livestock Emergency Guidelines and Standards

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.
