They are divided into six regions- (i) South America, North America, Central America and the Caribbean; (ii) Europe; (iii) Far East, South, and Southeast Asia, Australasia and the Pacific Islands; (iv) North of Africa, Near, and the Middle East; (v) West and Central Africa; and (vi) East and Southern Africa.
