F3 Life systems are replicable, scalable and adaptable for a variety of agricultural or natural resource value chain and ecosystem management contexts. Furthermore, the F3 Life Toolkit achieves its objectives in a more rigorous and cost-effective way than other approaches.
Preliminary data indicate that while conventional environmental and natural resource management projects result in a lower than 15% annual rate of uptake of new practices or technology, F3 Life’s approach has to date resulted in a 94% uptake.
F3 Life’s approach is cost neutral or can even generate positive returns. By contrast, we estimate that costs for conventional agri-environmental projects lie in the range of USD 100 – 300 per beneficiary over three years.
