Should rich countries be more responsible for the result of migration induced by the over consumption of natural resources?
The increasing of number of world population is unavoidable, thus the demand for consumption of the natural resources remain the pressure on the environment. In turn, human induced disasters, pollution ..seem to be observed as the factors causing migration. The question who consumes more than another? Apparently, the consumption of natural resources is mostly seen in the rich countries rather the poor. Poor are natural resources dependents and their consumptions are still in the traditional manner while the rich requires these resources to be the raw materials for industry sectors and investments.
The world seems to create a big gap between rich and poor countries. In the end, poor people tend to find migration is good way to either adapt or secure their livelihood and lives. By mentioning this, the rich countries should be more responsible for the result of migration induced by the over consumption of natural resources.
