Abstract: Different types of heterogeneities are prevalent in the Common Property Resources (CPRs) usage and management. They generally arise from the differences in endowments, objectives and cultural background of the users. This paper aims to identify such heterogeneities and possibly try to discuss their implications. The leaders in CPR management (CPRM )are those who are rich or hold large number of livestock. Gender inequality also plays a major role in terms of extended benefits of CPRs. It is found that women are generally at loss in terms of unequal benefits received by them. The interesting irony is that the females are major players in the collection of CPR but they are not involved in the decision making for CPRM. They make up a nearly non-existent section for this purpose.
