La coopérative Sunkpa Shea Women's Cooperative est une coopérative de beurre de karité dirigée par des femmes autochtones dans la région des savanes du nord du Ghana. Cette coopérative a pu adopter une approche communautaire pour créer une chaîne de valeur durable et inclusive du beurre de karité qui a offert des opportunités économiques à plus de 800 femmes au sein de la coopérative.

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.
