The ostensible subject of this publication is community media. The real focus of the text is on democratic and sustainable development. It reflects the main interest of those who support or are active in community radio, an interest that does not centre on technology, equipment, infrastructure or spectrum. Their interest focuses on participation.
The publication contains articles, audio and video documents by practitioners, decision makers and scholars inviting to reflect on concrete examples on ICT for development and particularly the role of community media.

This paper will use the example of the approach taken by UK Community Radio station, 'Future Radio' to obtain both quantitative data primarily through street surveys and qualitative data through on-line questionnaires, exploring why the station felt such research to be both necessary and beneficial. Showing how reasonably accurate data can be obtained on a cost-effective basis, issues of accuracy and practical difficulties will also be explored. Finally, the paper will examine some of the opportunities and challenges raised by the changing nature of radio listening and interaction brought about by new methods of consumption such as Internet streaming and mobile 'smart-phone' applications.

This toolkit is a practical tool to supplement the Ethical Practice Guidelines which outlines the framework for good practice. This framework is also a useful tool for CRS to apply for their strategic planning and forward thinking exercises that they may undertake. This toolkit has been designed to be used as a whole or any part that a CRS deems necessary to reflect moredeeply on. The process recommended is consultative and participatory, with no obligation to use external resources for documenting the learning.

The Radio Manifesto sets out what young people want and what they really need from radio. Children's & youth radio groups in many different parts of the world have taken part in discussion workshops since 2001 to prepare their own contributions to the document. Their wishes for appropriate programming on the radio are presented in the form of a Declaration, with four following sections on Participation, Children's Rights, Traditional Culture & Entertainment, and Education.

The handbook outlines in detail the nature and form of healthy radio stations: how their governing structures should be set up; how they should be staffed and managed; what infrastructure and financial management systems have to be in place; how to produce quality programming; and how to ensure real community participation in all aspects of their daily work. A critical addition is the ‘health check tool,’ which allows one to conduct a diagnosis of the ‘fitness’ of a community radio station.

In the north eastern region of India, the concept of community radio is still at its budding stage. Anthropologists have said that our seven states of North East comprises of more than 350 ethnic and social groups. So, it is not possible for a public service radio like All India Radio to reflect the desires of all the ethnic groups in a region of such diversity.
The concept of community radio service was originated for such a diversified region. But it is rueful that due to various reasons, the concept of community radio service is not immensely popular in the North East region unlike the southern part of India.
