The head of the Asia-Pacific branch of the World Association of Community
Radio Broadcasters (AMARC), Ashish Sen, says that Feba's FIRST Response
training taking place in Bangalore, India this week is "the first step in
the journey towards introducing mobile broadcasting in India for disaster
management". He was speaking to participants of the workshop which will
culminate in a field trial in Nagapattinam, Tamil Nadu. Ashish, who is
also head of the Community Radio lobby group, VOICES, believes that
community radio will be a powerful force for the development of
communities in India and that they are on the threshold of the first
station being granted a broadcast licence in the next few months.
