This chapter focuses on efforts to create a process of analyzing the different contributors to the efficient and legal provision of global public goods (GPGs). It shows how social interactions generate various governance mechanisms that interact and gain significance in global governance. The chapter also reveals that the provision of public goods is a social issue, which results in social challenges. Social challenges are created as the provision of GPGs raises questions regarding cooperation among different communities and authorities. Individuals need to solve two categories of problems faced in the provision of GPGs. These problems involve creating an infrastructure for managing the interactions among people and formulating methods for managing external effects. Finding solutions to these problems is critical to addressing governance issues faced in the provision of GPGs.
