The Chinese government will rebuild homes for three million rural residents in 2013, according to the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development.

In 2008, the Chinese government launched several pilot projects to rebuild dilapidated houses in rural areas, and then a series of similar works spread across the country.

In July 2011, the Ministry of Finance issued guidelines to finance these renovations, with most of the money from the central government and local executives of different levels.

In the last five years, the central government has provided nearly 70,000 billion yuan (about 11,300 million), while contributions from local governments and social investments totaled 330,000 million yuan.

There is still about 20 million unsafe housing in rural areas, said a spokesman of Housing and Urban-Rural Development.

In the coming years, the State Council, China's cabinet, and various ministries strengthen efforts in the reconstruction with the aim of improving the environment of rural residents, the spokesman said.
