THE LIVESTOCK EMERGENCY GUIDELINES AND STANDARDS: Uptake in Ethiopia and Kenya Against Trends in Humanitarian and Development Assistance

This report reviews the uptake of LEGS in Ethiopia and Kenya, and assesses the extent to which LEGS has been institutionalized in these two countries. In terms of key humanitarian donors, LEGS is now used a reference for assessing or screening livestock projects by ECHO, OFDA and DFID. LEGS principles and activities are also actively supported by FAO – especially in Kenya - and UNOCHA, as the key UN agencies involved in funding and/or coordinating livestock projects in disasters.
