Greetings from Bangladesh NGOs Network for Radio and Communication (BNNRC)

BNNRC in Special Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations



BNNRC is promoting the advocacy with the government in relations to community radio with other organizations since its emergence in 2000 to open-up the Community Radio in Bangladesh to address critical social issues at community level, such as poverty, social exclusion, empowerment of marginalized rural groups and catalyze democratic process in decision making and ongoing development efforts.



As a result, Government of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh acknowledged the importance of community radio and announced the Community Radio Installation, Broadcast & Operation Policy. Bangladesh is the 2nd country in South Asia in formulating policy for Community Radio.



Subsequently, Bangladesh Government approved 14 initiators for installation, operation and broadcast of community radio stations in different parts of the country. This is the first time in Bangladesh history, when media diversification allowed community people to be involved in community broadcasting. It is expected that they will go for on-air fully by October 2011.



BNNRC now strives for the following core interventions to contribute in achieving 6th Five Years Plan, UN World Summit on the Information Society (UN WSIS) Action Plan and UN Millennium Development Goals (UN MDGs) through:



Right to Information for ensuring improved livelihood of the marginalized

ICT for Development for Bridging the Digital Divide in rural areas &

Community Radio/Community Broadcasting for amplifying voices for the voiceless in line with Digital Bangladesh Process



We hope community radio will be the alternative and strong effective community media for the rural disadvantaged population to express their thinking in their own voice. BNNRC is supported by contributions from different development organizations who share a commitment in building a free, independent and pluralistic community media for development of voices for the voiceless.
