aesa6yThe Agricultural Extension in South Asia (AESA) Network was formed in 2013 to meet the demand for a network of all those interested in extension and advisory services (EAS) in the region. Sustained efforts in the last six years have contributed to the development and promotion of new knowledge on extension research and practices, as well as influenced policies on EAS in the region. There is scope to accomplish a lot more to enhance EAS’s contribution to transforming agriculture in South Asia.

In March 2019, the Network completed its first six years of activities. With that, they prepared a special publication to mark the occasion, celebrate the past, and look ahead to the future. We look forward to your guidance and support to strengthen AESA so that it can make significant contributions to enhancing the capacity of extension and advisory services in South Asia.
