Regions of Chad

| | |}

The country of Chad is currently divided into 18 regions. From independence in 1960 until 1999 it was divided into 14 prefectures. These were replaced in 1999 by 28 departments. The country was reorganized again in 2002 to produce the current 18 regions.

Each region is divided into between 2 and 4 departments, apart from the city of N'Djamena, which is divided into 10 arrondissements.
