This project is funded by the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute (AHURI), and investigates health and related risks associated with informal and unregulated accommodation, using unique data sets on informal and short-term rental housing markets in major Australian cities. Policy options for expanding housing system capacity during health and other emergencies, serving vulnerable populations or essential workers, are also canvassed.
