Abstract

This worksheet will look at how the impact of climate change does on the labor market and the rural worker mobility. The question departs from the lack of academic debate about the relationship between climate change and the labor market, and the rural worker mobility. The main stream, which has so far discussed the labor market and the rural worker mobility, has focused more in the aspect of access to ownership of production facilities in the rural area. The argument is that the mobility of the community from the rural area to the urban area is due to problems in the rural area where the community does not have sufficient production facilities, in this case the ownership of adequate production facilities. This argument is not entirely wrong, but needs to be discussed further. This worksheet would like to show if there are other aspects in the village besides the issue of access to production facilities. This article sees that the labor market and the rural worker mobility from rural areas to urban areas are also driven by climate change
