Taoudénit is a region of Mali legislatively created in 2012 from the northern part of Timbuktu Cercle in Tombouctou Region.[1][2] Actual implementation of the region began on 19 January 2016 with the appointment of Abdoulaye Alkadi as the region's governor.[3][4] Members of the region's transitional council were appointed on 14 October 2016.[5] General Abderrahmane Ould Meydou replaced Alkadi as governor in July 2017.[6][7]

The region is divided into six cercles: Achouratt, Al-Ourche, Araouane, Boudje-Béha, Foum-Alba and Taoudénit.[8] The capital will be located at Taoudénit,[8] although the government is currently based in Timbuktu owing to the lack of infrastructure in Taoudénit.[5]
