DA's Technology Initiatives

Development Alternative is undertaken an initiative on Technological Innovations for Community Radio "Bridging the Digital Divide". The technologies like mobile applications, data management systems, and analytics etc. which are already being used in other areas have also never been implemented in the context of CRS. This was a very significant observation for DA to strategies the initiative and look for more and wider technological options. The idea behind innovating technologies for community radio stations was found to be a very new concept among technology developers as well as community radio stations.

DA has done an assessment to using various methods to understand the technological need of CR Stations. This need assessment survey showed that there is a lack of knowledge, understanding and capacity in CRS to explore and use technologies for themselves. DA also participated in variety of discussion with various technology providers have seemed to trigger a new direction of thinking for them. This has also exposed them to community radios as an explored area of innovations. In the result, 9 technologies has been developed and successfully piloted with 27 Community Radio in India. After three years of continuous effort in innovation of new technologies for CRS, we believe that the innovated technologies could not only solve the technical problem of community radio but also help in to increase the reach and accelerate to the Community engagement.
