|BEIJING Matt Calvert Jersey , Dec. 25 (Xinhua) -- China will renovate 5.8 million dilapidated homes in 2018 to speed up urbanization.
The country started renovation of 6.1 million homes in 2017, more than the target of 6 million, according to Wang Menghui, minister of housing and urban-rural development.
Total investment reached 1.84 trillion yuan (280 billion U.S. dollars) for the year, he said.
Authorities should increase the supply of public rental housing and offer them to poor families and groups including sanitation workers Alexander Wennberg Jersey , young teachers and migrant workers.
China plans to renovate 15 million homes from 2018 to 2020, according to official document released earlier this year.
The plan was part of efforts to fulfill the government's promise to rebuild rundown areas with a combined total of 100 million residents.
The transformation has remained a priority for the government in recent years. In the past eight years, more than 80 million people with poor living conditions moved out of rundown areas and into new homes.
UNITED NATIONS, Oct. 30 (Xinhua) -- The United States on Monday pledged 60 million U.S. dollars as bilateral aid to shore up a joint military force of five Sahel countries, but remained cautious over UN involvement.
The announcement was made separately U.S Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley as the Security Council was holding a debate over the newly established joint military force of five Sahel countries Zach Werenski Jersey , known as "G5 Sahel."
Tillerson said the money will bolster the capacity of those African countries in their fight against terrorism. "This is a fight we must win, and these funds will play a key role in achieving that mission," he said in a statement.
Haley told the Security Council debate: "We are proud to announce today that we plan to provide up to 60 million dollars in bilateral assistance, which we will work with our Congress to identify, to help stand up the joint force."
She indicated her country's wariness toward UN involvement. "We understand the force will need ongoing support and are eager for opportunities to work closely with our partners to make this effort a successful one. But we believe that the G5 force must be Jack Johnson Jersey , first and foremost, owned by the countries of the region themselves. We expect that the G5 countries will take on full regional ownership of the force within a period of three to six years, with continued U.S. engagement. This is the approach that will be most effective, in the end, in freeing the region from terror."
It seemed that Haley was cool on the idea of UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres that the G5 joint force and the UN peacekeeping mission in Mali Sergei Bobrovsky Jersey For Sale , one of the five Sahel countries, could be "mutually reinforcing."
"We are inspired by the region's effort and intent, but we have reservations about encumbering a large peacekeeping mission with tasks it would not traditionally perform. The mission in Mali has struggled to reach its full troop authorization. It continues to suffer from a lack of enabling equipment, and it expends most of its resources protecting and re-supplying itself. What is more, the mission is coming under increasing attack from violent extremists and shifting operations and locations. For these reasons Artemi Panarin Jersey For Sale , the mission struggles to execute its strategic objective -- to support the peace process in Mali. Its ability to focus on its core objective could be further compromised by a mandate to support a force with a broad concept of operations and recurring needs. We owe it to the troops as well as those who have lost their lives to protect the mission's vital resources from further overstretch and ensure they are devoted to supporting a political solution in Mali."
She added that her country has serious reservations about using UN resources to support non-UN activities. "We will each bring different strengths, insights, and resources to bear on addressing insecurity in the Sahel."
The UN Security Council is expected to adopt a resolution on the 5,000-strong force of the five Sahel countries of Burkina Faso, Chad Seth Jones Jersey For Sale , Mali, Mauritania and Niger.
Guterres called on the Security Council to be ambitious in its decision. "Firm political support for the G5 Sahel is vital, together with material and operational support commensurate with the challenges faced," he told the Security Council debate on Monday. Given the rapid evolution of the situation and the risks of widespread contagion, failure to act could have serious consequences for the region and beyond Sergei Bobrovsky Salute to Service Jersey , Guterres warned.
SYDNEY, Dec. 12 (Xinhua) -- A team of Australian scientists published new findings on Tuesday that demonstrate a more precise way to forecast the population rates of slow-growing, long-living species like dolphins and bears.
Under the new model developed by the University of New South Wales (UNSW) study, less emphasis is given to the survival rate of wildlife and more focus is afforded to the rate of reproduction.
"The way people have analyzed these things in the past has made it look, sometimes incorrectly Artemi Panarin Salute to Service Jersey , that survival rates are the only thing that matters," UNSW professor and co-author Bill Sherwin told Xinhua.
But an analysis of two dolphin populations in Western Australia has challenged the validity of the current forecasting methods.
Researchers found one of the populations was predicted to decline, while the other was stable.
According to the findings, the decline had little to do with the survival rate.
"The only important difference is that the one that is declining has a much lower reproduction rate," Sherwin said.
"We can swap the mortality rates between the two populations Seth Jones Salute to Service Jersey , we can swap the total population size that can fit in the area, we can swap anything we like between them but.
