Indonesia’s parliament on Tuesday passed a law approving the relocation of its capital from slowly sinking Jakarta to Borneo.
Borneo is a jungle-clad island 1,200 miles from Jakarta.
The new capital is named “Nusantara.”
Jakarta is home to more than 30 million people in its greater metro area.
It has long been plagued by serious infrastructure problems and flooding worsened by climate change.
Experts predict up to a third of the city could be underwater by 2050.
Indonesia is the world’s largest Muslim country.
