Sustainable development of rural areas is one of the greatest challenges that face the South African government. Despite the government initiatives, rural people still suffer from real problems of inadequate development. This book provides great insight and profundity to a topic that received scant attention in construction literature. Utilising the unique management skills of Project Management Firms to support the government in achieving its sustainable development objectives for rural areas is a new area of research. This book presents an innovative framework, developed by the authors, to create a partnership between government & project management firms as an approach to sustain the government efforts towards overcoming the problems of rural areas development which haunted South Africa for many decades to date. This book is imperative for government authorities, officials, decision makers, project management firms and any other parties that are concerned with Public-Private Partnerships and sustainable development of rural areas in general and South Africa in particular.
