This training of trainers (TOT) course, held in Burkina Faso and adapted to the West African context, was based on previous LEGS trainings of trainers. The LEGS TOT course aims to teach participants about the LEGS Approach, to train participants to train others in the approach, and to apply the LEGS handbook as a tool to plan more effective livelihoods-based livestock interventions in emergency responses. The TOT took place April 12–17, 2015, with 18 participants from seven francophone West African countries. All participants felt that the training was relevant for their work and the training objectives were fully or mostly met.
