Regions of Côte d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast)

Côte d'Ivoire has been reorganized so that the secondary divisions are now 31 regions and two autonomous districts.

FIPS Publication Change Notice No. 10, affecting FIPS PUB 10-4, was issued on 2006-03-23. It assigns new FIPS codes to the current Ivorian regions, superseding the department codes formerly in effect.

Change Notice 7 to FIPS PUB 10-4 is dated 2002-01-10. It lists the eight new departments which were created in Côte d'Ivoire around 1998.
