Lebanon is divided into six governorates (mohaafazaat, Arabic: محافظات —‎‎;singular mohafazah, Arabic: محافظة‎‎).

The governorates are further subdivided into twenty-five districts (aqdya—singular: qadaa).[1]

The districts themselves are divided into municipalities (nahiyah), each enclosing a group of cities or villages.
