LEGS Evidence-Based Approach

LEGS is an independent initiative that aims to improve the quality and livelihoods impact of livestock-related projects in humanitarian situations.

LEGS Evidence-Based Approach

LEGS draws on evidence-based good practice from around the world, tracking and using evaluations, reviews and impact assessments of livestock and livestock-related projects as part of this evidence base. Click here for the LEGS Impact Database.

Measuring Livelihoods Impacts

LEGS is interested to learn about any experiences you may have had with using the  LEGS Approach. We are especially interested to understand the livelihoods impact of your project in terms of the three main livelihoods objectives of LEGS (LEGS Handbook page 9).

If you have implemented a project using LEGS and would like to share your experience, please contact the LEGS Coordinator.

LEGS Handbook

The LEGS Handbook

The LEGS Handbook provides standards and guidelines for appropriate and timely livestock-based livelihoods responses in emergencies, using a participatory and evidence-based approach. The Handbook was produced through a broad consultation process, drawing on good practice worldwide. The LEGS Handbook is a companion to The Sphere Handbook alongside other humanitarian standards which make up the Humanitarian Standards Partnership.
