LEGS Discussion Paper series – more international consultants wanted

By 27th August 2020 Uncategorised

LEGS is commissioning a series of Discussion Papers on current issues of relevance for the LEGS community of practice, to review internal and external learning in order to feed into the preparations for the next edition of the LEGS Handbook, which is planned for 2021/22.

The main objective of the Discussion Papers is to inform the LEGS technical Advisory Committee about key and emerging issues and trends that are not yet, or not adequately, covered in the second edition of the LEGS Handbook.  The Discussion Papers focus on evidence-based good practice, presenting key areas where the LEGS Handbook can take these issues into account and, where possible, providing case studies to enhance the existing collection of case studies in the Handbook.

LEGS is now seeking consultants to work on the final two papers:

  • The impact of COVID-19 on livestock livelihoods Click here for TOR
  • Making the LEGS Handbook more user friendly – Click here for TOR

Each consultancy of up to 8.5 days will produce a 15-page Briefing Paper on the topic.

Required competencies: background and at least 10 years’ experience in humanitarian or development sector, with specific experience and understanding of the topic; excellent understanding of livestock issues; excellent writing skills; previous knowledge of LEGS; (for the User Friendly paper: editing experience and skills).

For further details please see the specific TOR.

Interested parties should submit their CV and a brief technical proposal (max 1 page) outlining their suggested methodology and timeline to the LEGS Coordinator by 4th September 2020.
