This document details the main steps for the Government of Bangladesh
(GoB) to implement the Community Radio Installation, Broadcast and
Operation Policy (CRIBOP) of 2008. The National Strategy for the
Implementation of CR policy places the GoB at the centre, having two
pivotal roles: as regulator and facilitator, to enable community radios to
become full-fledged partners in the development process of Bangladesh.
As regulator, the main role of the GoB is to implement and opportunely
revise the legislation for community radios, to create an enabling
environment conducive to a strong CR sector. It must also ensure that
national and local government officials understand the principles of CR
and effectively implement the policy, supported by transparent, competent
licensing, monitoring and evaluation mechanisms.
As facilitator, the GoB takes the leadership in promoting collaboration
and establishing strategic alliances among all stakeholders to increase the
chances of long-term sustainability of the CRs.
The Strategy identifies points of convergence and collaboration between
community radios and several of the GoB most important initiatives, such as
the Right to Information Act 2009, Vision 2021 and Digital Bangladesh, the
National Strategy for Accelerated Poverty Reduction II 2009 (NSAPRII)
and the Millennium Development Goals. It also presents an assessment
of the current situation in the county, in terms of enabling factors and
opportunities for the establishment and growth of community radios, areas
for further development and challenges ahead. Based on this assessment
and the legislation itself, it sets out strategic objectives to guide the GoB’s
interventions leading to a meaningful and sustainable Community Radio
Sector.
