Location and Size
The Asunafo South District was carved out from the Asunafo District Assembly after it was split into Asunafo North and South. This explains its proximate location to the Asunafo North District Assembly and even semblance in names.
The ASDA is one of the six District/Municipal Assemblies in Ahafo Region. Kukuom is the District capital. The District has an estimated land size of about 1019 kilometers square, (393 square miles). The ASDA is located at the southern part of the Ahafo Region with the eastern frontier forming the geographical and administrative boundary separating the Ahafo Region from the Ashanti Region.
The District shares common boarders with the Asunafo North District to the north and the Juaboso District to the South-West. Other adjoining Districts are the Sefwi-Wiaso District to the South-East, and Atwima Mponua District to the East. Since the ASDA was originally part of the Asunafo North District, both the North and South Asunafo may share similar socio-economic characteristics and problems.
