Abstract: From p. 1: "The challenges we are tackling by linking sustainable development to issues of common property are indeed formidable. Ultimately they are global in extent. The air we breath, and use as a global sink, has become the latest testing ground for common property management. The intense debates surrounding the practical measure for limiting global climate change symbolize the opposite poles of stewardship and fierce exploitation which shape most common property situations. On the horizon are global conventions to regulate action regarding climate change, biological diversity, and possibly world forest utilization. As well, there is the existing law of the Sea convention. We can assume a generation of work lies ahead, regarding transformative thinking on common property resources at a global level."
