Maria Cristina "Crissy" S. Guerrero has worked on community forestry and indigenous peoples concerns over the last two decades. Themes of focus have been community enterprise development, Asian indigenous crafts promotion and conservation, ancestral domain delineation and management, non-timber forest products (NTFPs) policy advocacy, participatory resource monitoring (PRM), traditional ecological knowledge (TEK), indigenous community conserved areas (ICCAs) and forest food.  Her field experience is particularly on the islands of Palawan in the Philippines and on Indonesian Borneo though her recent experience extends to different ASEAN countries such as Laos, Malaysia, Vietnam, Cambodia and India.  Her current efforts have been on community NTFP enterprise training development and ASEAN Social Forestry engagement.  Her key skills include project development and management, fundraising, networking and organizational management.  Her training is in Business Management and International Development.  She was previously the Executive Director of the Non-Timber Forest Products Exchange Programme for Asia (NTFP-EP) and stays on with the organization now as Senior Adviser for Strategic Programs.  NTFP-EP works to build the capacities of forest based people on sustainable livelihoods, resource management, and land and resource rights issues in the region respecting cultural identity and gender equity as cross cutting themes.
