As a part of the 2011 Kallikratis government reform, the former Kavala Prefecture (Greek: Νομός Καβάλας) was transformed into a regional unit within the East Macedonia and Thrace region. The prefecture also included the island of Thasos, which became a separate regional unit. At the same time, the municipalities were reorganised, according to the table below.[1]
