Bélier Region is one of the 31 regions of Ivory Coast. Since its establishment in 2011, it has been a region in Lacs District. The region's population in the 2014 census was 346,768. The seat of the region is Yamoussoukro, though Yamoussoukro itself is an autonomous district of Ivory Coast and is not part of Bélier Region or Lacs District.
