Abstract

The  aim  of  this  paper  is  to  examine  the  concept  of  global  commons, identify  these  global  commons  through  the  lens  of  international  law and  assess  the  challenges  facing  the  governance  of  these  global commons  as  well  as  the  inherent  benefits  that  can  accrue  by  virtue  of proper  governance  of  these  resource  domains.  The  study  revealed that  there  are  governance  systems  in  place  for  these  global  commons, nevertheless,  the  effectiveness  of  these  governance  systems  have been  retarded  on  the  part  of  the  states  (especially  the  Global  North) through  lack  of  commitment  to  progress  towards  achieving environmental  sustainability.  This  revelation  is  demonstrated  in  the exhibition  of  non-compliance,  greed  and  dichotomy  on  the  part  of states.  From  the  foregoing,  the  study  safely  concluded  that  in  order to  drastically  reduce  the  adverse  effect  of  global  environmental challenges  like  global,  warming,  trans-boundary  pollution.  The protection  of  the  global  commons  must  be  pursued  by  states,  with  all sense of  commitment  to achieving  global  sustainable development.
