National Cities Research Program Strategic Agenda
Australia is a highly urbanised nation. As we move into the 2020s, our cities are facing new challenges.
Flows of people, information, goods and services have accelerated, while the question of how our cities relate to their natural environments has also come into sharper focus. Australia’s policy and practical responses need to be informed by a sound evidence base.
AHURI has delivered the National Housing Research Program for twenty years, gaining international recognition for the quality and depth of Australian housing research, and enhancing Australia’s reputation for informed policy decision-making. It is time for a similar platform to support coordinated, policy-focused, Australian research into cities and urban issues.
