Abstract

The Department of Rural Development and Land Reform introduced the Comprehensive Rural Development Programme (CRDP) in August 2009, with the aim of bringing about co-ordinated and integrated agrarian transformation to benefit rural communities. In a study to identify technologies available for rural development and initiatives that involve technology, it was found that the implementation of the programme leaves much to be desired. Tim Hart reports.
