Tragedy of commons

A fundamental challenge in addressing environmental and social issues is the responsible management of shared resource systems, where the self-interested actions of one individual, organisation or country can be in direct conflict with the long-term interests of a larger group or society. This is called “tragedy of the commons.

 

Examples: Tragedy of the commons

  1. Climate change: One company or country’s investments to minimise its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions may have a positive global effect, but these benefits are shared equally with countries or companies that do not minimise GHG emissions.
