Indonesia will be among the first nations to initiate a climate-based migration: transitioning its rapidly sinking, flood-prone capital from densely-populated Java to Borneo, one of the richest and most imperiled cultural and biodiversity hotspots on Earth. The new capital will be situated across a vast landscape where indigenous and migrant communities and corporations collectively practice subsistence, commercial, and extractive land uses and livelihoods across a shared landscape that also holds key endangered species habitat. This historic migration will spur rapid, wide-ranging, and intersecting effects on the surrounding social, economic, political, and ecological landscape.
