A multi stakeholder workshop was organised by the Uttarakhand State Disaster Management Authority (USDMA) here on Wednesday. The purpose of the workshop was to expand and strengthen the network of community radio stations in vulnerable areas of Uttarakhand and to bring central and state government experts along with existing community radio stations and potential CR stations at one forum so that provision of technical and financial support to this network at every level can be facilitated. Officials opined that this network is the best way to further decrease the response time in the time of emergency situations.
During the workshop, interactive sessions were held on sustainability of CR stations, support form linear departments and other organisations and content of the programmes of CR stations. It was decided that the CR stations will be providing a CR calendar of the programmes to the authority. Creative stories that elicit the interest communities in Uttarakhand were also discussed. It was also stated that the department needs to provide information on various subjects related to disaster from time to time so that authentic and vast amount of information can reach communities. Other related issues were also discussed in the workshop. Secretaries Sowjanya, SA Murugesan, Dehradun district magistrate C Ravishankar, Disaster Mitigation and Management Centre executive director Piyoosh Rautela and others were also among those present in the workshop.
