Jakarta is sinking. Take a look at Indonesia’s new capital, Nusantara.

  • Indonesia is considering moving its capital from Jakarta to the new city of Nusantara.
  • The new city will cost $35 billion and will not be completed until 2045.
  • Managers use a variety of promotional tactics to generate interest.

Jakarta, on the northwest coast of Java at the mouth of the Ciliwung River, is the capital and largest city of Indonesia.

It is home to some 10.6 million people, including around 30 million in the metropolitan area. It is also sinking, with about 40% of the area below sea level.

The Indonesian government plans to move the capital to Nusantara, a new city under construction on the east coast of Borneo, about 870 miles north of Jakarta.

The work will cost about $35 billion and won’t be completed until 2045. However, about 6,000 civil servants are expected to move in in time for the next president’s inauguration in October.

The decision is not without precedent. Brazil moved from Rio de Janeiro to Brasilia in 1960, while Abuja replaced Lagos as Nigeria’s capital in 1991.

But this is the first time that the climate crisis has played a role in this process. In recent years, rising sea levels have made Jakarta the world’s fastest growing megacity, prompting the Indonesian government to move the capital.

Take a closer look at Nusantara.
