This book focuses on fundamental goods and services, which are categorized as global public goods (GPGs), and addresses certain governance issues. The distinctive natures of these goods create challenges for the existing methods of dealing with problems and conflicts in public goods provision. Governance mechanisms can play a key role in solving the problems of public goods provision. The book explores the principles of governance, which ensures consistency between choices of citizens and the efficient provision of GPGs. These principles also eliminate the prevailing knowledge gap as a requirement for creating preferences and solutions to the problems. The book furthermore aims to eliminate the disparities existing between GPG policies, along with the prerequisite incentives and understanding.
