Live: Cleaning up the world’s dirtiest river一起来围观印尼政府如何净化世界上最脏的河流

The Indonesian government is set to embark on a massive collaborative project to clean up West Java's Citarum River, considered the world's dirtiest. The river, which originates near Bandung and flows into the sea just east of Jakarta, is the third-longest on Java Island. It is severely polluted, mostly with industrial waste from factories. The Citarum River has never been a top priority for the government until December last year, when President Jokowi issued an instruction that all stakeholders should take the issue seriously. CGTN’s Silkina Ahluwalia takes you through the river to see how local governments, residents and communities are working together to resolve this matter.
