History[edit]

Kouibly Department upon its creation in 2005. It kept these boundaries until 2012, but other subdivision boundary changes began to be made in 2008.

Kouibly Department was created in 2005 as a second-level subdivision via a split-off from Man Department.[3] At its creation, it was part of Dix-Huit Montagnes Region.

In 2011, districts were introduced as new first-level subdivisions of Ivory Coast. At the same time, regions were reorganised and became second-level subdivisions and all departments were converted into third-level subdivisions. At this time, Kouibly Department became part of Guémon Region in Montagnes District.

In 2012, five sub-prefectures were split-off from Kouibly Department to create Facobly Department.[4]
