Departments of Haiti

The Republic of Haiti is divided administratively into ten departments (département in French). The departments are further divided into 42 arrondissements, and 140 communes.

The number of departments of Haiti may change in 2015, since the government plans to increase them from 10 to 14, but does not rule out to increase them to 16.[1]
