This paper will report on an ongoing survey into the perceptions of senior INGO leaders on the future of the aid and development sector, and the role of INGOs within it. Led by Professor Andrew Thompson and Professor Sir Mike Aaronson at the University of Oxford, the survey of INGO leaders is a significant strand of a larger policy-facing research programme on the future of the INGO sector. Through a series of expert interviews they plan to survey current and future leaders of the NGO sector on their visions of the sector by 2030, the changes the sector needs to undergo in order to prepare them to face the anticipated global challenges of 2030, and the barriers currently impeding change within the sector. There is currently no comprehensive information available that considers the views, challenges and lived experience of senior INGO leaders navigating an ever-changing environment. Understanding these dynamics will provide insight into how the humanitarian sector, and INGOs specifically, can adapt to better meet the challenges of both the present and the future. Research is being undertaken with support from Save the Children UK and their partners and the Centre for Humanitarian Leadership at Deakin University, Melbourne.
