Common property resource is an important research topic in social science research. Geographers study common property resources as part of land use and natural resource, although focused study on common property natural resources are limited. This review paper has been developed considering a larger frame cutting across disciplinary boundaries. Starting with definition, this chapter dwells on various facets of common property resources, their role in sustainable development and emerging problems. Distribution of common property resources vary according to agro-climatic conditions and the ‘tragedy of commons’ knows no boundary. There are over exploitation, increasing dependence of marginal people on common property resource and competition. Future research in geography may cover all these issues at the micro-level using traditional and modern tools.
