Housing in Regional Australia – Webinar

Presented by the Regional Australia Institute

Housing in Regional Australia – Webinar

The Regional Australia Institute (RAI) is excited to host the next event in their Regions Rising Webinar Series - Housing in Regional Australia: Meeting a Growing Demand.

Regional communities in Australia have long faced challenges in providing the housing they need to accommodate their populations and fuel economic growth. The coronavirus pandemic has seen a burgeoning interest among Australians in regional living, amplifying these housing challenges and making regional housing a hot topic of national conversation.

The webinar, led by RAI Chief Economist Dr Kim Houghton and a panel of experts, will explore:

  • the current state of regional housing markets;
  • the challenges associated with providing adequate and appropriate housing in non-metropolitan areas;
  • the measures that are being, or could be, taken to meet housing needs in regional Australia; and
  • the roles of governments, industry and financial lenders in meeting regional housing demand.

This hour-long, free webinar, addressing one of regional Australia's hot-button issues, will also include a Q&A session.

WHEN: 11:00 am (AEST) on 20 May 2021
