List of districts

According to the last revision in September 2011, Ivory Coast's first-level subdivision was reorganized from 19 regions into 14 districts (12 regular districts and 2 autonomous districts). The districts were subdivided into 30 regions, which were further subdivided into 95 departments, which were further subdivided into 498 sub-prefectures.

  • The biggest city Abidjan and the capital Yamoussoukro and their surrounding areas were split from their regions to form autonomous districts. Of the remaining twelve districts, northern regions of Denguélé, Savanes, Vallée du Bandama, and Zanzan were re-designated as districts with no change in territory.
  • The old Agnéby and Lagunes regions were merged to form the new Lagunes district.
  • The old Bafing and Worodougou regions were merged to form the new Woroba district.
  • The department of Fresco was transferred from the former Sud-Bandama region to the Bas-Sassandra region to form the new Bas-Sassandra district, while the remainder of Sud-Bandama region merged with Fromager to form the new Gôh-Djiboua district.
  • The old Dix-Huit Montagnes and Moyen-Cavally regions merged to form the new Montagnes district.
  • The old Haut-Sassandra and Marahoué regions merged to form the new Sassandra-Marahoué district.
  • The old N'zi-Comoé and Lacs regions were merged to form the new Lacs district.
