The last three decades have witnessed an explosion of studies around common property resources (CPRs). However, one major gap in the current literature on CPRs is the lack of research on urban commons (Colding et al., 2013). Urban ecology faces massive pressure due to urbanisation and population growth; on the other hand, natural resources such as urban wetlands also provide crucial ecosystem services [Millennium Ecosystem Assessment (Program), 2005]. The need of the hour is to protect and conserve them to tackle climate change.
