In this episode, Manasi and Sualeha sit down with Angela Zhong, a student studying Economics and Environmental Policy at Harvard and a recent Partnerships, Policy, and Communications Intern at the UN Capital Development Fund. We start by discussing Angela's thoughts on the social cost of carbon, which is the economic damage of each ton of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere. Despite the social cost of carbon being estimated by the federal government to be $5 per ton when recent research shows it is likely around $185, Angela shares how these changing valuations affect the priority placed on carbon emissions in various regions of the world. Angela also breaks down her work at the UNCDF, sharing their role in de-risking investments by integrating the cause priorities of private donors and local communities. We close the episode by discussing her thoughts on recent shifts in the Effective Altruism movement and how she has harnessed different principles to power her own long-term impact.
