Nepal government has prioritized and listed herbs and herbal products as one of the major item for export from Nepal (out of twelve export categories). This is exciting news for all NTFPs (Non Timber Forest Products) stakeholders in Nepal. However, the sector has been facing lots of uncertainty mainly on market. Usually, all farmers, collectors, traders and exporters of Nepal experience lacking of information and knowledge on end market demand, price and market requirements while making decisions on NTFPs business. As understood commonly, market provides signal not whole information but this is the most powerful factor that determines development of the NTFPs sector in Nepal.
