LEGS Webinar Series

 

LEGS is conducting a series of webinars, based on the new Discussion Papers. On this page you can find information about upcoming webinars, and – further down the page – the recordings and outstanding questions from completed webinars.

Completed Webinars

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.

LEGS commissioned a Discussion Paper to review this issue, with a particular focus on whether and how the next edition of the LEGS Handbook might address guidance relating to emergency response in the context of this type of widespread public health emergency, including in particular any implications for veterinary support.

The upcoming webinar will present a summary of the findings of the Discussion Paper. Register now for this webinar here.
