    The 400-year curse dragging Indonesia's capital into the sea.

    Like many coastal cities around the world, Jakarta is dealing with sea level rise. But Indonesia's biggest city also has a unique problem: Because of restricted water access in the city, the majority of its residents have to extract groundwater to survive. And it's causing the city to sink. Today, Jakarta is the world’s fastest-sinking city.
    The problem gets worse every year, but the root of it precedes modern Indonesia by centuries. In the 1600s, when the Dutch landed in Indonesia and built present-day Jakarta, they divided up the city to segregate the population. Eventually, that segregation led to an unequal water piping system that excluded most Indigenous Jakartans, forcing them to find other ways to get water.
    To understand how it all ties together, and what’s in store for Jakarta’s future, watch the video above.

So, basically, according to woman at 6:00 Dutch are to blame becouse Indonesians didnt have piped water to every home? Why they did force Dutches to make it for them? Oh, they couldnt, they had better stuff to do, like building mosques - first things first, I got it. ...but, maybe, I dont know, they could invite Dutch to invade them again but this time to do proper job and lay all the pipes, yes?

the goverment is blinded by money for developing their megacity, that they invite more company and people to built building but forget to repair the city structure itself , from outside it may look okay but the truth everything is in chaos in that city . and don't forget about the people who moving from other city and province them self . i was once live in jakarta myself and been many time to the northen part of the city and it's scary knowing that on some place the sea surface is way up above the ground level . we have a lot of tsunami attacking our country this past 2 decade . wonder what gonna happen if there and underwater earthquake in northern of jakarta ... they gonna sunk immediately ......... erased from the map .
