Bangladesh NGOs Network for Radio and Communication (BNNRC) is an independent civil society organisation (CSO) based in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Since 2000, it has been working with a focus on media development, building the capacity of CSOs on digital transformation, which is both knowledge-driven and context-sensitive. It considers the challenges and opportunities created by Bangladesh's rapidly changing media and CSOs environment in the fourth industrial revolution era.

BNNRC has achieved recognition for its outstanding work in media development and digital transformation. BNNRC is associated with the United Nations and has won several awards, including the UN World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) Prize 2016 and recognition as the Champion for Media Development and Digital Transformation in 2017, 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2023. The organisation is also accredited by WSIS and is an observer organisation with the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). BNNRC has been granted consultative status with the UN's Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).
