Livestock Emergency Guidelines and Standards (LEGS)

Livestock support in South Sudan

The development of international guidelines and standards for the design, implementation and assessment of livestock interventions to assist people affected by humanitarian crises is now underway. The Livestock Emergency Guidelines and Standards (LEGS) grew out of recognition that livestock are a crucial livelihoods asset for people throughout the world, and livestock interventions are often a feature of relief responses. Yet in spite of many individual agencies' experience, there are no widely available guidelines to assist donors, programme managers or technical experts in the design or implementation of livestock interventions in disasters. LEGS mirrors the process for developing the Sphere Guidelines and will be based on multi-agency contributions, broad reviews and collation of practitioner experience.

The LEGS website contains background information on the process and how to contribute: www.livestock-emergency.net
