Sustainable Alternative Livelihood Development (SALD) is the Mae Fah Luang Foundation’s development approach with an end vision of providing people with sustainable and licit livelihoods, taking into account the social, economic and environmental dimensions of their communities. The success of the Doi Tung Development Project in Chiang Rai, which was initiated in 1988, has led to the implementation of this approach in several outreach projects both in Thailand and abroad, namely Myanmar, Afghanistan and Indonesia.

The Mae Fah Luang Foundation also continuously plays the role of consultant, policy advocate, and Thailand representative on the topic of SALD in various United Nations forums.
