Yale Indonesian Forum Conference:
In recent years, Indonesia saw its cities drowning under the deluge of torrential monsoon rains, its forests blazing in the wake of land clearance for palm oil, its people suffocating under thick blankets of haze, and its capital sinking swiftly beneath the waves. At the turn of a new decade, Indonesia faces a legion of climatic challenges that threaten its population and natural resources. In August 2019, President Joko Widodo announced the relocation of the Indonesian capital in a bid to move the administrative center, partly due to the environmental stresses of pollution, sinking lands, and rising sea levels.
The Yale Indonesia Forum (YIF) calls on scholars, activists, policy officials, and other interested parties to present on issues germane to climate in Indonesia at our yearly conference on Saturday, April 11, 2020.
