La Sunkpa Shea Women's Cooperative es una cooperativa de manteca de karité dirigida por mujeres indígenas en la región de la sabana del norte de Ghana. Esta cooperativa ha sido capaz de adoptar un enfoque comunitario para crear una cadena de valor de la manteca de karité sostenible e integradora que ha proporcionado oportunidades económicas a más de 800 mujeres de la cooperativa.

The Sunkpa Shea Women’s Cooperative, born out of the Community Resource Management Area (CREMA), have led local initiatives that contribute to ecosystem restoration with indigenous economic trees and traditional fire management practices. These interventions help mitigate wildlife risks in this drought prone region of Ghana. Practices such as collection of shea in the locally zoned areas of production, no-take zones, and limited use areas are contributing to the conservation of biodiversity and enhancing landscape characteristics.

In addition to their sustainable harvesting of shea nuts, the cooperative has substantially improved their value addition capacity by making high-quality, organic shea butter and selling it directly to International buyers through the cooperative.
