About Ivory Coast administrative subdivision

We struggled a bit to find an up-to-date mapping of Ivory Coast administrative divisions (district, region, department) – so this is the Excel file we’ve used. Nice to see that Diaspora is considered a top district/region/department, not sure if that’s official or not.
At NamSor, they are working hard to build a great API for gender studies that works for Africa too. If you would like to collaborate on innovative #Gender and #BigData research, there is currently a 100,000$ prize and they’d be happy to team up with social scientists or quantitative gender researchers. Also, they are also open to academic collaboration on African Diaspora matters – feel free to reach out.
