Sumayal Shrestha (ES&P '2011)
IDCE Fellow

Sumayal Shrestha (Nepal) received her B.A in economics and fine arts from Wilson College, Penn. Shrestha became interested in climate studies after she learned about the carbon market in a finance class, and became interested in climate legislation and trade policy when she moved to Washington, D.C. to test the waters in a “green” career. In addition to her academic background, her work experience at mission-driven organizations such as The World Food Programme and Carbon Fund has channeled her focus towards sustainable resource management. Her research interests include global climate policy/market and its impact on resource efficiency in emerging economies. She also continues to pursue her passion in the arts by partaking in community event and web activities.
