Upcoming webinars

Putting the best foot forward: LEGS and Localisation, Contextualisation and Institutionalisation. Presented by Andy Featherstone

Tuesday 15th December 2020 at 12 noon GMT.

The current LEGS strategy contains a commitment to increased localisation among stakeholders and the LEGS Community of Practice. A linked aspect of the strategy is the recognition of the need for greater uptake and institutionalisation of the LEGS Approach at individual country and local level, as well as globally. The webinar will provide an overview of the issues of institutionalisation, localisation and contextualisation, and make recommendations for LEGS on how these issues can be incorporated into LEGS future strategy and be better represented in the next edition of the LEGS Handbook.

Livelihoods and Resilience. Presented by Omeno Suji

Tuesday 15th January 2021 at 12 noon GMT.

LEGS takes a livelihoods-based approach to emergency response, focusing on protecting and rebuilding livestock assets, and drawing on the sustainable livelihoods framework. This means that although LEGS technical interventions are designed for application during or immediately after an emergency, the LEGS Approach promotes preparedness, recovery and linkages with long-term development.

At the same time, since the publication of the second edition of the LEGS Handbook, there has been a growing interest in the concept of ‘resilience’. Taking a livelihoods approach also provides an opportunity to address the humanitarian and development nexus. The LEGS Discussion Paper on Livelihoods and Resilience reviews the role of livelihoods-based approaches in the broader context of humanitarian response, and their contribution to the humanitarian-development nexus, and how livelihoods-based approaches can contribute to resilience building.
