This map layer shows contested territories and all countries affected by territorial disputes in 2014.
Example of how to read the map:
Abyei is a region that in 2014 was part of Sudan and South Sudan and therefore is classified as a contested territory.
- Natural Earth and GAUL - Global Administrative Unit Layers
The data presented have been taken from the Natural Earth Dataset and from the GAUL Dataset (Global Administrative Unit Layers) of the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations). BICC has checked both datasets for completeness, revised and adapted them. Territories marked are the often very small contested territories and countries affected by territorial disputes. As there are differences between these two datasets, the source is shown when clicking on the territories.
