Research Series Issue 49: Climate and jobs for rural young people

Climate change matters for all young people. It matters especially for those whose livelihoods depend on agriculture and will continue to do so in the future due to slowing growth in labour-intensive manufacturing and constraints on labour absorption in the service sector.

Where agriculture is seen as a means to deliver job security and food security, vulnerability to climate change presents major risks for the large numbers of young job-seekers.

This study shows that adaptation to climate change is feasible and options increase as new technologies and management approaches come on-stream.
