The Livestock Emergency Guidelines and Standards recently released the third edition of the handbook. You can view the handbook, download a PDF copy, or purchase a copy from their website below. This edition includes case studies of applications of guidelines as well as step-by-step guidance on how to use the LEGS tools to develop an emergency response plan. The first three chapters focus on general principles and decision-making:

  • Chapter 1 introduces LEGS and provides an overview of emergencies, livestock and livelihoods.
  • Chapter 2 presents the eight LEGS Principles that underpin all LEGS-based interventions
  • Chapter 3 provides step-by-step guidance and tools for emergency response planning

The remaining chapters focus on the six LEGS technical intervention areas: feed, water, veterinary support, shelter, livestock offtake, and the provision of livestock.
