In early 2020, GFRAS provided support to the Agricultural Extension in South Asia (AESA) Network and the Bangladesh Agricultural Extension Network (BAEN) in order to customize one of the NELK Modules in the context of Bangladesh. The BAEN Executive Committee selected the GFRAS NELK Module 7 on ‘Facilitation for Development’ for customization.

AESA and BAEN jointly implemented the development of the customized module for Bangladesh.

The process of customization consisted of five phases spread over a span of six months. These were: pre-preparation, introduction to the NELK module, development of the customized module, validation, and finalisation.

AESA developed this guidance note to share their experiences with customising this NELK Module to the Bangladeshi context so that it will inspire and inform others who are keen on customising the varied NELK modules to specific countries.
