Organization: Interagency Regional Analysts Network (IARAN)

Location: Kruzel Room, The Geneva Think Tank Hub, 2nd Floor World Meteorological Organisation 7bis, Avenue de la Paix, 1211 Geneva


Conflicts are becoming more protracted and regionalised, inequality is growing, as are populations. Environmental disasters are on the rise. Humanitarian needs, both short- and long-term, will be acute and widespread. Over the next 15 years the aid sector will need to evolve and adapt. Opportunities and challenges lie ahead, and INGOs in particular, will need to be strategic in how they are innovating in their own structures to promote a more inclusive humanitarian ecosystem between now and 2030.

To celebrate UN day in Geneva, the Interagency Regional Analysts Network (IARAN) is launching the Future of Aid : INGOs in 2030, a report which analyses the future of the humanitarian and development sectors, within wider global changes, and the role of international non-governmental organisations within it. It looks at current trends, presents 4 scenarios for the future, categorises crises that are likely to occur in the next 15 years and lays out 5 organisational profiles for INGOs to restructure towards in order to survive past 2030.

To launch the report, the leadership team of the IARAN will be presenting their findings in French and in English to an audience of NGO practitioners, the press, UN officials, diplomatic missions, and other philanthropic bodies based in Geneva. All are welcome to attend.

The event will take place as follows:

  • 10:30AM - 12:30PM Presentation of the report in French followed by Q&A*
  • 12:30PM - 1:30PM Light lunch & official Launch of the report in Geneva
  • 1:30PM - 3:00PM Presentation of the report in English followed by Q&A*
