Conference Convenor

The National Housing Conference 2019 is convened by the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute (AHURI) in partnership with The Department of Housing and Community Development, NT.

AHURI is a national independent research network with an expert not-for-profit research management company, AHURI Limited, at its centre. Through active engagement, AHURI’s work informs the policies and practices of governments and the housing and urban development industries.

Australian policy and decision making in housing and urban issues is informed by credible and independent evidence to facilitate:

  • The alignment of public, private and not-for-profit sector investment to optimise outcomes and value
  • An integrated approach to planning productive, sustainable, and liveable urban environments
  • Healthy, cohesive and connected communities and places
  • Affordable and secure housing for all Australians.

AHURI’s mission is to inform and impact better housing, homelessness, cities and related urban outcomes through the delivery and dissemination of relevant and authoritative research.
