Districts of the Gambia

The Gambia is subdivided into 43 districts. They are listed below, by Local Government Area (previously Regions, known as Divisions until 2007), each with its population at the 15 April 2013 Census (provisional returns).[1]

The former Banjul Region is now divided into two Local Government Areas (LGAs) - Banjul City (which is now subdivided into 3 districts) and Kanifing (consisting of a single district).

The former Central River Division is now divided into two LGAs - Kuntaur LGA in the west and Janjanbureh LGA in the east.

Each of the other former Divisions has now become a LGA with no change in extent (although each was renamed after its administrative centre).
