Central Asia Regional Information Network

The Central Asia Regional Information Network (CARIN) is participating member of the GOFC-GOLD network (Global Observations of Forest Cover and Global Observations of Land Use Dynamics).  CARIN has strong linkages with other GOFC-GOLD regional information networks such as SCERIN, MEDRIN, CaucRIN, and SARIN.

CARIN geography centers on five countries emerging from the Soviet Union (Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan) and Mongolia, and extends into parts of neighboring countries with comparable biogeophysical environments. We are an inclusive, informal network of scientists and professionals located within the region or with scientific interests in Central Asia. CARIN is a platform to promote and support collaboration among remote sensing experts, researchers, academicians, NGOs, and relevant government agencies in Central Asia.
