TOPSHOT-INDONESIA-ENVIRONMENT-POLLUTION

TOPSHOT – This picture taken on December 29, 2016 shows residents living along a narrow duct that typically runs through slums with tin shacks crowding around the water’s edge, where residents have been dumping trash for decades due to the lack of a proper rubbish disposal system, in the Indonesian capital Jakarta.
A group of children gathered on the banks of the Ciliwung river in the Indonesian capital Jakarta, staring into the water and casting nets to try to catch fish. Such a scene would have been unthinkable several years ago on the major river, which used to be heavily polluted with stinking rubbish that blanketed the water’s surface.
