Welcome to the LEGS Website

Millions of people worldwide depend on livestock for their livelihoods and many of them – and their animals – are affected by disasters, both natural and man-made. There is a growing realisation that the response to these disasters needs to help save not just lives but also livelihoods, including protecting livestock.

The Livestock Emergency Guidelines and Standards (LEGS) provide a set of international guidelines and standards for the design, implementation and assessment of livestock interventions to assist people affected by humanitarian crises. LEGS aims to improve the quality of emergency response by increasing the appropriateness, timeliness and feasibility of livelihoods-based interventions. Read more…

As well as the LEGS Handbook, the LEGS Project runs a global awareness raising and training programme to promote the use and future revision of the guidelines.

LEGS is a member of the Humanitarian Standards Partnership, alongside the Sphere Project and other humanitarian standards initiatives.
