http://setkab.go.id The Jakarta administration says it will soon draft a master plan for Jakarta's "giant sea walls" in response to alarming rates of coastal subsidence (or sinking) and rising sea levels, which is expected to dramatically affect Northern Jakarta over the next few decades. The project will be funded by a grant from the Dutch authorities, as the Jakarta administration partners with the administration of the city of Rotterdam in the Netherlands. Purba Robert M. Sianipat, an official working with Indonesia's Coordinating Minister for the Economy, said the Rotterdam authorities were currently organizing a bid for a project consultant, with the winner expected to be named by mid November. The drafting of the master plan is expected to commence in late November. "The bi...
Presented by: Prof. Christopher Silver, PhD, FAICP, University of Florida Jakarta, Indonesia was established in the early 17th century as the Dutch trading center of Batavia in Southeast Asia in a river delta created by no less than thirteen rivers. Unsurprisingly the Dutch city builders incorporated water into its essential fabric. However throughout the city in the 20th century the waterfront was transformed into its backwater, a process facilitated by the dominant governmental, industrial, service and residential functions shifting to the interior regions of the rapidly expanding metropolis. The transformation was guided by a planning process that neglected the social and ecological foundations of the city and that treated the waterfront area as the place to accommodate the least desi...
The capital is slowly sinking at a rate of seven centimetres every year and experts say half the city will be below sea level by 2030. However, environmentalists say the massive project to protect reclaimed land could wipe out coastal and fishing communities. The extraction of water from below ground, mainly for use on big construction projects, is seen as the main reason for the city's predicament. Al Jazeera's Step Vaessen reports from Jakarta.

Indonesia's capital city is sinking. Jakarta sits on a swampy plain and has sunk four metres in the past three decades. Water drained through wells to supply the city is causing the ground on which it lies to subside. Today 40 per cent of the city is below sea level. The government launched a 263 million dollar scheme in October to build a giant sea wall around the city. The hope is that the wall will stop the sea water overwhelming the city as it sinks further still. The World Bank which oversees a huge flood mitigation project in Jakarta which it largely funds says the problems are acute. "If you compare this against the other major cities in this region - Manila, Bangkok or Ho Chi Minh City - they also suffer from land subsidence but the rates that we have seen in Jakarta is actu...

Muara Karang is in North Jakarta on the waterfront. It is far from commercialized and on the 3 times that I went it was not at all popular with Westerners. The seafood was fantastic and my favourites were the Trevally and Squid, simply BBQ'd over coconut husks in one of the small (and very simple) restaurants at the end of the seafood market area. Going at night is probably best as even without light it looks a bit grubby.
In many coastal cities, the ground is now sinking faster than the sea level is rising due to climate change. This subsidence is the result of human activity, namely the pumping of groundwater.Subsidence is an underrated problem worldwide. How much and how quickly it can proceed is apparent in North Jakarta, where the city has sunk four metres in the last 35 years, a fall of 10-20 cm per year.
