Kanem is one of the 22 regions of Chad. It was created in 2002 from the former Prefecture of Kanem. It is named after the famous Kanem Empire, which was centered in this vicinity. The region's capital is Mao.

In 2008, a portion of the Kanem region (the Bahr el Gazel Department) was split off to become the new Bahr el Gazel Region.
