Abstract: This study discusses opportunities and challenges for integrating local knowledge in improving rural accessibility and mobility, within the context of supporting the Comprehensive Rural Development Programme (CRDP) initiatives in South Africa. One of the major challenges besetting rural areas of South Africa and the CRDP sites is the lack of and need for a critical mass of infrastructure and services that can link communities to one another. This will aid the process of transforming rural spaces, places, people and cultures. The research for this study therefore sought to explore alternative and innovative ways through which local knowledge could contribute towards reversing impediments and existing problems in rural areas.
