History[edit]

Zoukougbeu Department was created in 2008 as a second-level subdivision via a split-off from Daloa Department.[3] At its creation, it was part of Haut-Sassandra 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, Zoukougbeu Department remained part of the retained Haut-Sassandra Region in the new Sassandra-Marahoué District.
