Thirteen governments from all world regions as well as three UN agencies and fifty NGOs took part in the program on 8 June 2017.
ATD Quart Monde's reports notes that the idea has not raised great hopes nor excessive enthusiasm with both advantages and disadvantages being recognised.
Among the advantages it listed:
2. Enabling everyone to live in dignity and to have access to the necessary minimum;
3. Giving more power to people who would not be in a situation of dependency or insecurity;
On the other hand, potential risks included:
1. Fear of being permanently excluded from the world of work.
Hence, any policy of UBI would need to form part of an overall policy to eradicate extreme poverty.
