in jakarta, coastal zone is located in the northern part. however, due to the rapid development within the city, it affects the natural balance causing a quite serious erosion along the coast. one of the effort to overcome this issue is to preserve habitats for mangrove trees.
mangrove lives in a swamp as pictured above. mangroves provide significant value in the coastal zone as a buffer against erosion, storm surge and tsunamis. more and more awareness on this significant contribution of mangrove is being implemented to help the erosion in the coastal zone of jakarta. hopefully, it helps.
