A core element of the CLP support package is the provision of raised plinths (provided to all core households and many non core). Plinths provide protection during high floods. During CLP-1, over 90,000 households were raised on plinths at least 60 cm above the highest known flood level. In CLP-2, the plan is to raise at least a further 60,000 households. The objectives of this study were to assess the life span and occupancy status of homestead plinths raised during CLP-1.
