Forging Innovations: Community Multimedia Centres in Nepal

This is a collection of case studies on Community Multimedia Centres (CMCs) in Nepal. It is intended to showcase the interesting and diverse growth of this initiative in spite of conflict and the lack of community radio regulation in the country. Three CMCs are each discussed using four categories: location and context, organizational structure, programmes, and sustainability. By examining three centres concurrently, common themes emerged in the overall functionality of CMCs in Nepal. This study identifies some key issues which can assist CMCs towards their goal of providing ICT access to poor and marginalized communities in Nepal.
