Districts or woreda (also spelled wereda, Amharic:ወረዳ) are the third-level administrative divisions of Ethiopia and are managed by a local government. Woredas are composed of a number of wards (kebele), or neighborhood associations, which are the smallest unit of local government in Ethiopia. Woredas are typically collected together into zones, which form a region; some districts are not part of a zone, and are called Special Districts, which function as autonomous entities.
Although some Districts can be traced back as institutions to earliest times—for example the Yem special woreda, the Gera and Gomma woredas preserve the boundaries of kingdoms that were absorbed into Ethiopia, and in Mam Midrina Lalo Midir those of historic districts of Ethiopia (in this case, two of the districts of Menz)—many are of more recent creation. Beginning with 2002, more authority was passed to districts, in the form of staff and budgets transferred from the Regional governments.
