Abstract

What are commons or common pool resources? Commons are resources that are used and collectively managed by a community. In the villages, forests, rivers, lakes, gunda thopes (wooded grove), gaumala (grazing land), and ponds are all commons. These are natural resources from which communities get some benefits such as food, water, medicine, fuelwood and timber, and many other raw materials for household usage and also for selling it to other people. Local communities also care for these natural resources by laying down rules on how these commons can be used. In cities, one can say that lakes and parks are instances of commons.
