Bagalkot district is located in northern part of Karnataka. The district has a strong agricultural base as three rivers pass through the region. The major crops grown are Jowar, Wheat, Turdal, Sugarcane, Cotton. Ground nut and Chillies. Fruits like Grapes, Pomegranate, Lemon, Sapota are also grown in considerable quantities. Recently, Government of Karnataka has identified Bagalkot as "Industrial Growth Centre" for Agro-based products.

The region has a high concentration of handlooms and power looms. The products of these sectors are very popular. But due to the obsolete techniques and changing customer needs, the industry requires more reorientation

The Bagalkot city and surrounding hundreds of villages are coming under submergence due to Upper Krishna Project. The city is being shifted to new planned township and rehabilitation centres are coming up for accomodating villagers. This has led to a large scale construction activities. Shortage of cost effective building materials and skilled labour is felt in this region.

BEC-STEP started its activities in 1998 and based on the local needs the following thrust areas have been identified:
