Purpose: DESCRIPTION: Shea trees provide vital food and income for 80m people throughout the Sudano-Sahel. However, unsustainable shea parkland management has reduced tree, pollinator and bird diversity, threatening long-term livelihoods. The project will research and pilot best management practices for optimum pollination, and inform sustainable shea production in Burkina Faso and beyond. PURPOSE: Understanding of the relationship between tree diversity, pollination, shea yields and migratory birds in Burkina Faso, informs management of 500 parkland farms, and sector-wide guidance, promoting livelihood resilience and biodiversity.
