No 2, Economics of Sustainable Development.The Economic Impact of Climate Change. - Working papers from Ecological University of Bucharest, Department of Economics

Abstract: Climate Change is a process of a global nature facing humanity in this century in terms of environmental protection. Are we doing enough? Will we do enough? The climate change must be analyzed in multidimensional approach, not only as the economic and environmental dimensions of sustainable development, but the social one as well. This paper describes the impact of climate change on one the most important social dimension: the employment. One economic sector, agriculture, will be looked at in particular and a special focus is put on employment. The case study is Romania, a very traditional agricultural country, where one third of the employed population works in agriculture. Data on employment in Romania are provided from Labour Force Survey carried quarterly by National Institute of Statistics; data source on relationship between Europeans and agriculture within the EU is Eurobarometer: Europeans, agriculture and the Common Agricultural Policy (2016).
