The Wider Image: Sinking shoreline threatens millions in Indonesia
Experts say scores of villages and towns along Indonesia's shoreline are being inundated because of a grim combination of man-made environmental destruction and climate change. Roughly 40 percent of Jakarta is below sea level and a new sea wall has had to be built in a bid to hold back the waves. Indonesia, an archipelago of thousands of islands, has about 81,000 km (50,331 miles) of coastline, making it particularly vulnerable to climate change. It is also home to more than a fifth of the world's mangrove forests, which naturally help keep the tides out. But only 3 million hectares of mangroves remain, down from nearly double that three decades ago, according to Wetlands International. For years, coastal communities have chopped down the mangrove forests to clear the way for fish and shrimp farms, and for rice paddies. In some places, hundreds of metres of coast that used to be lined with mangroves have now been swallowed up by the sea. The government has scrambled to work with environmental groups to replant mangroves, build dykes and relocate some people. But many residents, mostly poor fishermen and vendors, are either reluctant to leave their old family homes or simply have nowhere to go further inland on crowded Java.

A marsh wetland is seen near the city of New Orleans, Louisiana, United States August 18, 2015. In 2005, Hurricane Katrina triggered floods that inundated New Orleans and killed more than 1,500 people as storm waters overwhelmed levees and broke through floodwalls. Congress authorized spending more than $14 billion to beef up the city's flood protection after Katrina and built a series of new barriers that include manmade islands and new wetlands. Reuters photographer Carlos Barria returned to New Orleans after documenting events in 2005 and found a city much rebuilt and renovated, although abandoned homes show Katrina’s lingering impact.

Sunlight sparkles off the water's surface as pink flamingos gather in the Camargue regional natural park, near Arles, southern France, April 12, 2015. Situated in the delta of the Rhone River on the French Mediterranean coast, classified by UNESCO, the Camargue Biosphere Reserve is made up of a mosaic of lagoons of fresh, brackish and saline wetlands, one of the most important in Europe. The Camargue covers an area of over 930 km? (360 square miles) with an exceptional biological diversity and home to unique breeds of horses and bulls, and more than 400 species of birds including pink flamingos. The marshy land could be impacted by climate changes and coastal erosion in the future as one scientific model for the year 2100 predicts the ocean level rising 50 cm above current levels, and another estimating a 1 metre level rise.

Horsemen ride in the Camargue regional natural park, near Arles, southern France, April 12, 2015. Situated in the delta of the Rhone River on the French Mediterranean coast, classified by UNESCO, the Camargue Biosphere Reserve is made up of a mosaic of lagoons of fresh, brackish and saline wetlands, one of the most important in Europe. The Camargue covers an area of over 930 km? (360 square miles) with an exceptional biological diversity and home to unique breeds of horses and bulls, and more than 400 species of birds including pink flamingos. The marshy land could be impacted by climate changes and coastal erosion in the future as one scientific model for the year 2100 predicts the ocean level rising 50 cm above current levels, and another estimating a 1 metre level rise.

Flamingos fly over a heron at a wetland reserve in Celestun in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula December 6, 2011. With the world's population of wild flamingos under threat from overdevelopment and illegal trade on the black market, the wetland reserve is thriving with thousands of the pink feathered creatures in search of an ideal winter habitat. According to the Caribbean Flamingo Conservation Program, the estimated 45,000 flamingos that call Mexico's Yucatan state home are an integral part of the travelling bird's regional metapopulation that stretches as far as the Caribbean islands.
