Priyanka is a first-year Masters of Science Student with the Energy and Resources Group. At ERG, she plans to identify and quantify the economic benefits of just transition policies and explore issues at the nexus of international economic development and climate action. Prior to coming to ERG, she worked with the New Climate Economy (NCE), a major international initiative housed within the World Resource Institute and governed by the Global Commission on the Economy and Climate. At NCE, she provided research support for their flagship 2018 global report “Unlocking the Inclusive Growth Story of the 21st Century: Accelerating Climate Action in Urgent Times”, authored research briefings on climate finance for the 2018 G7 meetings, and managed the project’s country portfolios in China, India and Indonesia, working with high level stakeholders and government agencies to help implement a low-carbon development policy agenda. She is very interested in getting involved in research as it pertains to any of the issues listed above, as well as supporting any IPCC or other international climate impact synthesis reports.
