The consulting firm will work as the program facilitator and disseminate 20 episodes of radio programmes on various thematic areas.
The radio will take full charge of conducting public hearing after the research on committee performances of the Provinces till date and will explore the works undone. Such areas of focus may include the issues on postpandemic recovery, justice and human rights issues, among others.
The selected Bills from Federal Parliament and Provincial Assemblies will be analyzed by independent experts with the contribution from PSP and Radio will ensure a lively discussion from multiple angles.
For the preparation and selection of each thematic area of the programme, discussion topics will be decided quite in advance by forming a Content Advisory Team. The modality of the programme production will be finalized in coordination with the PSP team.
Within the period of broadcast, people from different stakeholder communities and geography will have their voices/say recorded and that will be forwarded to the concerned MPs, parliament committees or the other relevant authorities for their response.
The designated field-based programmes on the anticipated thematic areas will be developed by ensuring inperson participation of the Provincial Assemblies or MPs from the concerned constituencies. However, in the event of any situations beyond control due to pandemic, the field-based activities may be reprogrammed in consultation with the PSP team.
The PSP team in the field will support the radio team for the necessary coordination with the Provincial Assemblies as and when required.
The documentation will be ensured, and it will be a tool to measure output as monitoring of the impacts will be featured in this documentation. In addition to the coordination support to the radio, the project will implement the cost effective and cost sharing modality in program development and dissemination, wherever possible.
