Sufficiency Thinking in Sustainable Development

Sufficiency Thinking in Sustainable Development (STiSD) is a high-quality training program centred on the Sufficiency Economy Philosophy (SEP) bestowed upon the Thai people by His Late Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

Program Rationales

The world is facing many problems on multiple levels – from poverty and growing social inequities, from hunger and lack of access to clean water to the effects of climate change, lack of access to education and economic opportunity. New ways of thinking and new approaches to tackling these problems are needed. Nearly 200 countries have signed up to the United Nations’ Agenda 2030 under which 17 Sustainable Development Goals have been set to address many of these problems.

While the will is there, the challenge lies in how to achieve these goals.

His Late Majesty, Thailand’s King Bhumibol Adulyadej, spent more than three decades developing and implementing the Sufficiency Economy Philosophy (SEP) across his country – from agriculture and community development, to business, education and the environment. Over 40,000 Royal projects have produced enormous learnings about sustainable behaviour, which Thailand wishes to share with other countries.

This program has been designed to showcase the SEP and how it has been implemented in different parts of society. Emphasis is placed on participants understanding the SEP principles and how they might be applied to projects in their home country.
