Nature and Livelihoods is partnering on a project led by CAES and NCRI. It is seeking to diversify use of shea butter by exploring its applicability in/as edible oils and in bakery. Nature and Livelihoods expects this to contributing to increase demand for the butter and therefore returns to the landowners which in turn would further motivate farmers to sustain these hitherto naturally growing trees in their cultivations.
