LEGS Webinar: The Impact of Covid-19 on Livestock Keepers

By 2nd March 2021News

Join us for the final webinar in our series:


Tuesday 16th March 2021 at 12 noon GMT
Presenter: Andy Catley

The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting on lives and livelihoods across the globe, including the small-scale livestock keepers that LEGS seeks to support. Many livestock keeping communities around the world are already vulnerable to natural and man-made disasters, including drought, flood, earthquakes, tsunamis and conflict, and some are already in the midst of crises such as the locust infestation in East Africa and the Indian sub-continent. Some will become more vulnerable as a result of the pandemic, as many emergency response operations are restricted or put on hold. The final LEGS webinar in the series will review these topics and consider the implications for LEGS and for livestock-based emergency response in general.
