Temporary Basic Income to protect the world's poorest people could slow the surge in COVID-19 cases, says UNDP
What is the new Corona virus (COVID-19)?
It is a virus from the Coruna virus family, where most cases appeared in the Chinese city of Wuhan at the end of December 2019 in the form of acute pneumonia.
UNDP partners with people at all levels of society to help build nations that can withstand crisis, and drive and sustain the kind of growth that improves the quality of life for everyone. With offices in more than 177 countries and territories, we offer a global perspective and local insight to help empower lives and build resilient nations. Acting as the UN development system’s convener; UNDP worked with governments to mobilize the skills and ideas of different stakeholders and now has an important role to advocate for the central role of local governments and development actors to localize the SDGs.
