Administrative divisions[edit]

The region is divided into eight departments:


Since the 2011 administrative reorganization, Dix-Huit Montagnes was merged with Moyen-Cavally Region to create Montagnes District. Therefore, the department of Duékoué was transferred from Moyen-Cavally, along with the departments of Bangolo, Kouibly and Facobly, to become Guémon Region; while the departments (Biankouma, Danané, Man, Zouan-Hounien Department and Sipilou) united to become Tonkpi Region.
