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.
