Book by Dr. Bhandari, tells the real first hand story of lifelong conversationalist / social and environ-ment scientists along with the one of the oldest and largest conservation non-governmental organiza-tion- IUCN. The book cover reveals how an organization can make significant impact in conservation of nature and natural resources globally and in the developing world in particular. The role of interna-tional organization is depicted in a way that readers will travel along from IUCN HQ Switzerland to Bangkok and explore the not and bolts of environment conservation status and architecture of India, Nepal, Bangladesh and Pakistan. Book is useful to all stakeholders who are interested to know the global environmental problems; what international organizations can do or can not do. Book shows how theories can be applied to understand the role of international organization with different eco-nomic, political, environmental and cultural stages. “Green Web-II provides a scholarly analysis of key drivers embraced by IUCN to understand the complexity of the scientific, cultural, social and political interactions that impact the sustainability of our natural world. Professor Bhandari lays out a blueprint for a sustainable future, where strategically communicated global values and standards, when coupled with cooperative and intentional personal efforts, can make the greatest difference on the future of our planet and all those who inhabit it”
