Koperasi Wanita Sunkpa Shea adalah koperasi shea butter yang dipimpin oleh wanita pribumi di wilayah sabana di Ghana Utara. Koperasi ini telah mampu mengambil pendekatan yang dipimpin oleh masyarakat untuk menciptakan rantai nilai shea butter yang berkelanjutan dan inklusif yang telah memberikan peluang ekonomi bagi lebih dari 800 perempuan di dalam koperasi.

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.
