In our first episode in a special FWPA Webinar series, join our Statistics and Economics Program Manager Dr. Erick Hansnata and our esteemed panel of experts as they shed light on critical factors shaping the housing market’s future and what that means for the timber industry.

In this webinar we cover:

  • Our experts will unpack the impact of poor long-term planning and how that has resulted in the challenges in the housing market. In the next two years, we’re facing historically low levels of housing supply. What does this mean for the Timber Industry?
  • Discover how a mismatched trend of dwelling supply and migration intake poses a significant challenge to the housing market.
  • Constraints to building more homes are complex. From industry capacity limitations to urban planning reforms, our experts will discuss these issues and propose strategies for overcoming them.
