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.

Here is a map show­ing the coun­tries that are mem­bers of CARICOM.
