The first phase of the project, implemented in 2007 by the Association of Community Radio Broadcasters Nepal (ACORAB) with the support of IPDC, built capacity of 23 community radio stations and prepared a Code of Conduct for community radios in Nepal. In order to respond to the growing need of capacity building, which is driven by the increasing number of new licensed Community Radio (CR) in Nepal since the re-establishment of democracy in 2006, a second phase of the project have been implemented. The aim of Phase II was to consolidate the CR movement in Nepal, through capacity building and increasing awareness on CR values. Under the second phase, the Code of Conduct was revised to respond to the needs of all 140 CRs now operative in the country.21 selected community radio stations, especially in the most inaccessible and marginalized areas, participated in the in-house training on Radio Journalism and CR management. The training were organized at the radio stations themselves and the training was from 4 to 7 day long. Equal opportunity to participate was given to all the staff members of the selected radio stations, to move forward from previous initiatives where only the management used to attend. Experts in radio journalism and professionals contributed to enhance the orientation and training activities. Participatory approach was adopted in all phases of the training, where CR decided upon the training modules and subjects accordingly to their own need.
