Exploring UBI: COVID-19 and beyond

Join

The debate for Universal Basic Income (UBI) is fast gaining momentum as many countries are considering UBI among the responses to the Covid-19 pandemic. This Webinar with panelist Ugo Gentilini  (World Bank) and Francesca Bastagli (Overseas Development Institute) reviews key issues and evidence on UBI as a social protection measure, identifies emerging lessons from cross-country experiences; and reflects on its potential and limitations as both a crisis response and long-term intervention.

 

This webinar is part of the “Social protection responses to COVID-19” webinar series, a joint effort initiated by the IPC-IG, GIZ on behalf of the German Federal Ministry of Economic Development and Cooperation (BMZ), and the Australia Government's Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) collaboration with the socialprotection.org platform.
