Challenge

Increasing acts of Shea tree destruction is a major threat to the livelihood of women and the environment. Supported by Star Ghana Foundation, 150 women in North Gonja district of Ghana launched an advocacy campaign for the creation of Parkland in 5 communities to reverse the negative act. Results: 5 Shea parkland have been created in 5 communities for the women groups to manage. This project is to help the women group with tools and strategies to manage the Shea parkland sustainably.

Solution

Beekeeping practice by the 150 women in the parkland will enable them to produce honey to generate income for them. They will visit the parkland regularly to check the beehives and protect them from bush fires by creating fire belts around the parkland and clearing the bushes.This will protect the Shea trees from negative human activities. Flowers from the Shea trees will provide nectar for the bees and the bees will pollinate the flowers resulting in more Shea nut output and incomes.

Long-Term Impact

150 rural women have increased livelihood security from Shea resources and beekeeping venture from a sustainably managed Shea parkland in 5 communities results in replication of the Shea Parkland management practice in Shea tree endowed communities in the North Gonja district of Ghana.
