The Impact of LEGS

The LEGS Project monitors its impact in two key ways:

  • Organisational impacts: the LEGS Project tracks the incorporation of LEGS into the policies and procedures of key organisations, the extent to which LEGS is used in needs assessment and evaluations by these organisations, and the training of staff in the use of LEGS.
  • Livelihoods impacts: LEGS aims to monitor the impact of emergency interventions on livestock and livelihoods, in particular those which use the LEGS approach. See below for more information and links to selected resources on impact assessment.
