Code of Conduct Community Radio Operation in Bangladesh
The role of radio is indispensible in case of instant availability to get easy way of communication. But still there is no any radio media is standing to serve to specially raise voices for the different levels of grass root communities in our country. Community Radio Station can be specially designed to run by these marginalized communities, using their own language, ensuring their active participation and own management, where they can find reflections of their dreams through coordinating with their own local knowledge, culture and efforts with updated national and global knowledge and technology.
Having been influenced and motivated in this ideology, Bangladesh NGOs Network for Radio and Communication (BNNRC) mobilized various NGOs, International and UN organizations and the members and specialists of different civil society groups by arranging meetings, seminars, dialogues and publications and highlighted the importance and consequences of the Community Radio.

Frequently Asked Question(FAQ) about Community Radio Setting up in Bangladesh
A ‘community’ is considered to be a group of people who share common characteristics and or interests such as sharing a single geographical location i.e. a specific town, village, or neighborhood; sharing of economic and social life through trade, marketing, exchange of goods and services.
Community radio is, in effect, a form of public-service broadcasting, which serves a community rather than the whole nation. Community radio is an own resource of a community, which will reflect the outlook and attitude, norms and culture and thought and
ideology of the very community people.
A non-profit service will be in charge of ‘Community Radio’ broadcasting activities. It should be owned by a particular community, usually through a trust, foundation, or association. Its aim is to serve and benefit that community and create opportunity of flourishing the folk
culture, socio-economic practices and life-style of the community people.
