The Government of Indonesia already has plans to relocate the National Capital City from which it was originally located in DKI Jakarta, to East Kalimantan. One of the considerations of this policy is because East Kalimantan is considered to be a safe location and minimal threat of disaster.
Even so, not necessarily there would be absolutely no risk of a possible catastrophic threat hit East Kalimantan, especially throughout the Archipelago Capital Region (IKN). So the risk of disaster still exists. Therefore the Government is now focusing on being able to minimize these risks.
The method is through structural efforts, namely carrying out physical construction, to other efforts that are non-structural in nature by adjusting to regional vulnerabilities. As information , Effort mitigation disaster the IKN area is regulated in Presidential Regulation Number 64 of 2022 concerning the Spatial Plan for the National Strategic Area of the Archipelago Capital City for 2022-2042.

No only In addition , there is also the installation of sensors monitoring ground movement , then the construction is carried out continuously following the topography and contours undulation with utilise basin for pond until planning roads with a slope of less than 10 percent.
Related to existence effort for mitigate potency disaster floods , the Smart Water Management scheme was carried out. This is done by collecting rainwater inside tank lower land processed and utilized for To do sprinkling parks , including draining drains and cleaning roads.
Firmly, Minister Basuki outlined the idea about mitigation disaster in IKN that all must return to the environment, no can all concreted . In fact, the design for the development of the National Capital City (IKN) was designed with great care in paying attention to environmental preservation.
