Clearly showing the benefits of certain climate-smart agricultural (CSA) interventions over others in a particular context is key to facilitating prudent investment of scarce resources. Ranking certain CSA practices over others is complex because CSA implies multiple outcomes, which vary with context and scale. All stakeholders should have access to tools and information to help them rank and prioritize CSA practices, taking different criteria and trade-offs into account. Investing in best-bet practices identified through ‘best-fit’ XXX prioritization processes is the best way to realize locally relevant benefits of CSA. ‘Best fit’ means matching potential practices and their possible benefits to the local context using a prioritization process.
