From 1999-2006, Crude Accountability staff published Caspinfo, a free information service that consistently provided critical environmental information on the Caspian region to more than 1300 subscribers worldwide. As of summer 2006, we are pleased to announce that Caspinfo will be published under new auspices, led by Crude Accountability co-founder Aleksey Knizhnikov, thereby enabling Crude Accountability to focus our efforts on our important campaigns for environmental justice.

Caspinfo provided a forum for a free and open exchange of information on environmental issues critical to the Caspian region.

On the 1999-2006 Caspinfo website you will find a wide variety of environmental materials including: official governmental and international documents; directories; reports; surveys; methodological and scientific literature; and periodicals, including:
