Should Community Radio broadcast all year around, if it is meant to serve most during natural disasters?
A full-time Community Radio (CR) station is so much more than simply a tool for disaster management. It provides a platform for the community to work on multiple fronts, from their schools and roads to local jobs and market rates. It enriches lives and builds trust, among people and with the station. During a disaster, a fully functional CR station becomes a lifeline for the community, facilitating live updates from remote areas, and relaying information from villagers, local authorities and rescue and relief groups.
In Uttarakhand, a state characterised by difficult terrain, local CR stations, communities and reporters, can become a strong source of information to make rescue and relief focused and impactful.
