About a hundred million people living in and around forests in South and Southeast Asia depend on non-timber forest products (NTFPs) for their subsistence and cash income. NTFPs and NTFP-derived products such as furniture, honey, varnish, beeswax candles, herbal medicine and many others are necessities in urban communities and big cities, too.
Recognizing the potential benefits of sharing experiences and pooling expertise, an informal group of practitioners working in local initiatives in Indonesia, Malaysia, India, Vietnam and the Philippines formed in 1998. As the partnerships strengthened and initiatives intensified, the group decided to register as a non-profit organisation based in Manila, Philippines in September 2003.  
Today, NTFP-EP has fully established programs and country offices or coordination nodes out of Manila, Bogor,  Phnom Penh, Miri,  Hochiminh City, and Tamil Nadu.
