    1. the resin its sinking is because the sea level is rising and its rising 6 inches on average and the city was built on a low surface 40 percent of the city is under water. 2.they want them to take action because they need a giant wall to protect them from the water 3.they cant even drive cars or anything they have to row boats down the street. because the government made a really good idea

    1. Jakarta is vulnerable to sinking because it is located in the northwest coast of the Java Sea and it also lies on a low flat basin at the mouth of the Ciliwung River on the Jakarta Bay making Jakarta get flooded because of the rising sea level. 2. The government wanted to help the city not drown in water so they are trying to strengthen the existing sea wall around the northern part of the city. 3.The biggest issue of course is whether the country can afford the cost, which is expected to be about $40 billion USD over 20 years. Also there is still the technical challenge of gathering the large amount of soil that will be required to build the islands. Not only that but the cities are very populated. Critical thinking: I think the biggest hurdle/problem is the amount of money they will need to get or spend because they cannot afford the cost. -Sierra Lee

    1) Jakarta is vulnerable to sinking because it lies on a low flat basin at the mouth of the Ciliwung River on the Jakarta Bay. Its factors are the tons of flooding and that 40% of the city lies below sea level and is sinking by as much as six inches, annually. 2) A flood that happened caught governments attention. The existing seawall was breached. Their plan was to strengthen the existing wall to Jakarta. 3) Some of the hurdles they face are whether or not the government can afford this cost. They will need lots of things like pipes and such that can be very pricey. The author is impressed because he didn't think the government was actually going to pitch in an help.

    1---- They are vulnerable to sinking because sea levels are rising and the subsidence is lowering annually. 2---- strengthen the existing sea wall around the northern part of the city. 3--- They don't know if they can afford it all. Also there are 17 artificial islands that are designed to shield the city from the rising sea levels.

    A.F. 1.Jakarta is vulnerable to sinking because it lies below the the sea level.Other factors that help the issue are that their trying to build islands to shield the land from rising water levels and their strengthening the sea wall to absorb the run off water.

    noble 1. the city is sinking because the sea level is rising and 40% of the city is below sea level 2. the government plan to build a big wall to stop the water 3. the problems are do they have the money and then building the wall and finally how much soil will need challenge I think the biggest problem is how much money it will cost if other countries do not help they might not be able to start making the wall at all

    tsmith 1.) The reason that Jakarta is vulnerable to sinking is that the city was built on low flat basin at the mouth of the Ciliwong River on Jakarta Bay. The other factors helping the issue is that 40% of the city lies below sea level and is sinking about six inches annually. 2.) The city is slowly sinking which caused the government to act and think of a solution. They came up with strengthening the existing sea wall around the northern part of the city. Then the government would build 21-mile long wall and 17 artificial islands that would shield the city from rising sea levels. The islands would also have housing and office space for up to a million people. 3.) Some hurdles that the government would face with the plan is that it would cost a lot of money. Also it would be to find the right amount of soil needed to make the 17 artificial islands. 0 Reply

    1,jakarta is sinking from rising sea levels 3-10mm a year there is average of 8 meters which is 26 feet. 2. after 2007 flooding they are planning to make a deliberation.3.the biggest course issue is the weather can not afford the cost which is supposed to be 40 billion in 20 years.
