Abstract

A Study on Environmental Communication to Minimize Risks in the Development of Indonesia's National Capital (IKN Nusantara) in Penajam Paser Utara, East Kalimantan. Any development project will have an impact on economic, political, social, and cultural growth, especially in the case of the planned relocation of Indonesia's capital city to Penajam Paser Utara. This relocation will affect both the environment and the local community. This land will directly or indirectly impact the existing forests in Penajam Paser Utara. How can the risks associated with the IKN Nusantara development be minimized through environmental communication studies? The methodology used will be qualitative, employing in-depth interviews. The research's findings highlight key environmental communication aspects that should be prioritized and form the basis for policy recommendations to the Indonesian government. These aspects include: Environmental Information and Awareness, Public Consultation, Environmental Impact Assessment, Environmental Impact Mitigation, Environmental Monitoring, Community Participation, and Corporate Social Responsibility.
