Consultants sought for LEGS study in Horn of Africa !

The Livestock Emergency Guidelines and Standards (LEGS) are a set of international guidelines for livelihoods-based livestock responses in emergencies. Since the LEGS Handbook was published in 2009, the project has rolled out a training programme, based on training of trainers courses and the building of national and local capacity in developing regions of the world. FAO, as part of the ECHO funded project Regional Drought Risk Management Coordination and Technical Assistance, has provided funds to Vetwork UK to carry out a study on the effectiveness of LEGS interventions at field level in the Horn/East Africa region (Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya and Uganda), in particular following the drought of 2010/11. The output of this study is expected to inform LEGS interventions and programming in the region, both by FAO and partners and by other actors. A team of two consultants is being sought to carry out the study over the next two months. The deadline for expressions of interest is 15 May 2013. Information about the study and the Terms of Reference can be found on the LEGS website: www.livestock-emergency.net
