New LEGS Briefing Paper series – more international consultants wanted

By 16th April 2020 News

As we shared last month, LEGS is commissioning a series of Briefing 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 Briefing Papers will be 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 Briefing Papers will 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.

The preparation of the first three papers is underway and LEGS is now seeking consultants to work on the second set of papers:

Each 8.5 day consultancy will produce a 15-page Briefing Paper on the topic.

Required competencies: background and at least 10 years’ experience in the humanitarian or development sector, with specific experience and understanding of the Briefing Paper topic; excellent understanding of livestock issues; excellent writing skills; previous knowledge of LEGS.

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 27th April 2020.
