List of districts in the Somali Region
It is unclear how many woredas actually exist in the Somali Region, since the names and number of woredas given in the CSA's documents differ between 2005 and 2007, and different maps show a variety of names and boundaries.
The subdivisions of Somali have been changed several times, often due to local clan groups claiming their own woreda, and the boundary between the Somali and Oromia Regions is disputed, leading to ambiguity over the status of border areas.
