Making research gender-responsive in Burkina Faso: diary of a shea tree

A shea tree (Vitellaria paradoxa) describes its experiences with local women, men and children in Burkina Faso. It explains the many uses to which it is put, as well as the distinct ways women and men access its products depending on social identity features such as migration status. New socio-economic and ecological trends are threatening the species; working with the diverse groups of women and men farmers who manage the species and draw upon its products, researchers should build upon differentiated local experiences to promote inclusive and locally-relevant land tenure laws, policies and technologies that promote shea tree conservation.
