Since the beginning of 2017, TBI operates as a network of voluntarily cooperating, legally autonomous member organisations. The TBI network continues the activities of Tropenbos International, which was a unitary organisation with country offices in Indonesia, Vietnam, DRC, Ghana, Surinam and Colombia, and with its headquarters in the Netherlands. All TBI network members share the same mission and commit themselves to collaboration in pursuit of common goals.

Each TBI network member is a foundation established according to local law and is governed by a local board. TBI Netherlands and the TBI network as a whole are governed by the General Board.

As a network, TBI operates based on a shared strategy, which offers opportunities for comparative approaches and cross-country learning about national-level policies and practices. In each of the main tropical forest regions (Southeast Asia, West and Central Africa, and South America) the TBI network has two members facilitating the engagement in regional programmes and initiatives. Beyond the countries, the TBI network is able to effectively engage in international partnerships to inform international dialogues, and to influence international decision-making processes.
