Launch of the SADC Basic Income Grant Report

Studies in Poverty and Inequality Institute (SPII) would like to invite you to the launch of our latest report titled "Review of current social cash transfer programmes in SADC and global social protection responses to Covid-19".

This research report is a two part output report of a research project that SPII have undertaken over the past two years in collaboration with Open Society Initiative for Southern Africa (OSISA).
The objective of this project, through a review of social cash transfer programmes is to provide a Civil Society learning context for a review of universal basic income, or a Basic Income Grant, as a tool for social protection for all in line with the Sustainable Development Goals 1, 2, 5 and 10 specifically, and the other goals generally.

In this report, we have consolidated existing knowledge of BIG pilots, and the policy formation dynamics for social protection policies within the SADC region in order to argue for a comprehensive roll out of these programmes.

The event will be streamed live on our Facebook page.
