Moyen-Cavally Region is a defunct region of Ivory Coast. Until 2011, it was one of 19 first-level subdivision regions. The region's capital was Guiglo and its area was 14,150 km².[1] Since 2011, the area formerly encompassed by the region is part of Montagnes District.[2]

Administrative divisions[edit]

Moyen-Cavally was divided into four departments: Bloléquin, Duékoué, Guiglo, and Toulépleu.

Abolition[edit]

Moyen-Cavally Region was abolished as part of the 2011 administrative reorganisation of the subdivisions of Ivory Coast. The area formerly encompassed by the region is now part of Montagnes District. The territory of the department of Duékoué was combined with the former Dix-Huit Montagnes Region's Bangolo and Kouibly Departments to create the new second-level Guémon Region. The territory of the remaining departments—Bloléquin, Guiglo, and Toulépleu—were combined to create Cavally Region, another region of the new Montagnes District.
