But while Jakarta's future as a city is yet to be determined, its days as the capital may be numbered. Jokowi reportedly wants the new administrative hub to be closer to the center of Indonesia (Java is near the southwest corner of the country). One proposed location is Palangkaraya in Kalimantan, the Indonesian side of Borneo. It's inland and has the added benefit of not having to deal with the volcanic activity that plagues Java. But it lies in the middle of the island's old-growth rainforest, which is already imperiled by the runaway extraction of coal, gold, timber, and most recently palm oil. Some experts say a megacity here would worsen an already devastating ecological crisis in Borneo.
