BIEN is entering into a number of partnerships with other organisations in order to undertake joint projects. Further details will appear on this page.


BIEN signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in February 2021. The aim of BIEN’s partnership with UNDP is to advance a more systematic consideration of Basic Income as a policy tool for socio-economic recovery in situations of crisis, be they related to pandemics, civil conflict or natural disasters. Leading the UN System COVID-19 socio-economic response, UNDP is working with partners to ensure that recovery plans focus on policy innovation and bold, integrated solutions. UNDP brings to the partnership its global policy network and wealth of expertise and development practice as well as its global reach through its local presence in developing and emerging countries, including through direct engagement with national governments.  BIEN offers a unique network of knowledge and expertise necessary for the operationalisation of this policy tool.
