Other than development and field work, MFLF’s equally important responsibility was to implement the King’s Development Principles and the Mae Fah Luang Approach for the greatest social benefit on the national and international level.

MFLF was the principal driving force behind the establishment of Social Enterprise Thailand that is aimed at helping social enterprises achieve success along with social and environmental development. At the international level, MFLF is a key partner of the Thai Government and allied countries in advocating for policies on Sustainable Alternative Livelihood Development at top-level forums, such as the Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND), the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), and the United Nations General Assembly Special Session (UNGASS). This has put a spotlight on Thailand as a knowledge center on Sustainable Development that has led to actual implementation in many countries.
