Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA) is an international non-profit research organization dedicated to discovering and promoting effective solutions to global poverty problems.We also mobilize and support these decision makers to use these solutions to build better programs and policies at scale.
About the project:
A universal basic income (UBI) is a recurring, unconditional cash transfer sized to meet basic needs and paid to all members of a society.
Proponents argue that a UBI has the potential to eliminate extreme poverty and to counteract the harmful effects of rising inequality in wealthier countries.
The objective of the project is to test the hypothesis that a universal basic income is an effective way to eliminate extreme global poverty.
In addition to informing policy debates over the adoption of a UBI, our study design will also let us address deeper conceptual questions about the design of social protection in emerging markets.
Our implementing partner on this study is Give Directly, who will be delivering the cash transfers.
