This is increasing every year and it is likely that if this is not improved Jakarta will be uninhabitable. All components have a role in tackling this air pollution.

Pollution sources such as motor vehicles and industrial products are among the largest contributors to pollution in Jakarta. And the resulting exhaust gases will have a devastating impact on public health in Jakarta. Short-term effects of such pollution include shortness of breath, vertigo, respiratory distress and fatigue, and will become cancer, respiratory infections and also death if continued to be left in the long term.

There are several things that can be done to reduce air pollution, including:

Use environmentally friendly fuel for our vehiclesReduce vehicle use

If for a relatively close trip, use a bicycle

Do tree planting movements to increase oxygen production
