The Caribbean Region often faces problems of various sorts due to its history and location, among others: problems such as climate change, natural disasters, crime, money laundering and drug trafficking. How are these problems dealt with in the Caribbean Region? Well, the Caribbean leaders usually meet to discuss such problems and other matters that will affect the lives of their peoples. They have used the tool of cooperation through an organisation called the Caribbean Community and Common Market (CARICOM) to deal with regional issues, to encourage countries to develop and spread services, culture and sports, and to promote stronger and larger trade among member countries.
