Indonesia plans to relocate its capital – but what about Jakarta?

DW News on Youtube has the story.

Indonesia is moving ahead with plans to relocate its capital city from Jakarta to East Kalimantan by 2024. Some parts of the government are expected to move this year itself. One of the biggest reasons for the move is the fact that Jakarta is literally sinking. Ground water reserves are depleting due to overuse and sea levels are rising at the same time. Conditions that make everyday life a struggle for many. 

For more on this, we talk to Lengga Pradipta from the Universiti Brunei Darussalam.
