National Housing Conference 2022- Resilience. Connection.Transformation. 2nd-4th March Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre

The National Housing Conference to be staged in Melbourne. Convened every two years by AHURI, the National Housing Conference (NHC) is a 3-day forum that examines the latest evidence, significant policy reforms and the shining examples of best practice in delivering social and affordable housing options to Australians.

The State of Victoria is undertaking major housing reforms, underpinned by the Big Housing Build – aiming to deliver more than 12,000 new social and affordable homes in four years. The State is also undertaking significant reforms in domestic and family violence and mental health – policy areas where safe and secure housing has been identified as critical to a successful response.

The program will examine how Australia’s housing system is responding to the issues created by climate change – from resilience to bushfires, floods and other extreme weather events, to sustainable design and energy efficient housing. As well, systemic reform remains crucial in the sector and the conference will examine a range of priority policy conversations including affordability and availability in the private rental market; improving the linkages between housing and support systems such as healthcare, education and training; the state of national housing policy coordination, and more.

International keynote speaker will be Adrianne Todman, Deputy Secretary of the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development. Deputy Secretary Todman believes that we have responsibility to confront housing insecurity and help ensure access to good homes, to eliminate all forms of housing discrimination and to build the nation’s housing infrastructure in a way that expands equitable access to housing for all people.
