题目:Agriculture and Drought Induced Migration from Mexico to the U.S.

摘要:There is now substantial empirical evidence that climatic variability increases international migration, but relatively little is known about the mechanism driving the relationship and about adaptations that may reduce it. We use detailed data on migrants from Mexico to the U.S. to show that drought induced migration from Mexico to the U.S. is mediated by agricultural income shocks. Migration rates increase in drought years, but only by farmers in those parts of Mexico in which agriculture is sensitive to drought. We find suggestive indications that access to irrigation and some forms of non-agricultural income reduce the migration response.
