The Ouèzena Federation of Nahouri was created in 2011 and brings together 4 unions and more than 1200 members. Its headquarters are in Pô, in the Center-Sud region of Burkina Faso. It promotes the socioeconomic development of women through the sustainable exploitation of non-timber forest products in general and shea in particular.
Shea is the main source of income in these rural areas for women who face various constraints and difficulties. The resource is threatened due to demographic pressure, poor exploitation and climate change. Only sustainable exploitation, good organization of collectors, and quality products will enable the resource to be exploited sustainably. The grassroots member collectors are the primary beneficiaries of the process and thus of the development fund.

La Fédération Ouèzena du Nahouri a été créée en 2011 et regroupe 4 unions et plus de 1200 membres. Son siège est à Pô, dans la région du Centre-Sud au Burkina Faso. Elle promeut le développement socioéconomique des femmes à travers une exploitation durable des produits forestiers non ligneux en général et du karité en particulier.
Le karité constitue dans ces zones rurales la principale source de revenus pour les femmes qui font face à diverses contrainte et difficultés. La ressource est menacée du fait de la pression démographique, de la mauvaise exploitation et des changements climatiques. Seuls une exploitation durable, une bonne organisation des collectrices, des produits de qualité permettront d’exploiter durablement la ressource. Les collectrices membres à la base sont les bénéficiaires premiers de la démarche et ainsi du fonds de développement.
