dc.description.abstractAlthough they are 130 kilometres (km) apart, the areas of Delmas and Merafong City (the former Carletonville mining area) share certain environmental commonalities. The irresponsible environmental management of both areas, despite their different histories, are typical examples of limited and unsustainable environmental management practices. The discussion focuses on a basic understanding of the concept “irresponsible”, as well as what “interdisciplinary” in this context covers. This is followed by a geographical and historical description of the two areas. Aspects of the lack of environmental management by the Delmas and Merafong City local municipalities are discussed in terms of an interdisciplinary approach and a case study methodology. Among others, it is concluded that creating and maintaining a healthy, well-managed environment is a group effort. However, all group efforts are doomed to failure if there is just one weak link. It is suggested that any weak link or links must be determined and addressed for the communities of Delmas and Carletonville to benefit.en_US
