Abstract

This article analyzes the ecosystem services of water resources in the Amazon basin (water supply, waste processing, climate
regulation, nutrient cycle) according to the theoretical scope of global public goods, identifying the spatial extent of ecosystem
benefits and their beneficiaries. Four groups of beneficiaries were found: Brazil's trading partner countries that use the
mouth of the Amazon River, the South American countries that receive moisture from the Amazon basin through “aerial rivers”;
the Atlantic Ocean due to the contributions of sediments and organic matter from the “Amazon Plume” and the countries that
integrate the Amazon basin that use water resources for direct consumption or to produce goods and services. Due to spatial
dimension of benefits from ecosystem services studied, the Amazon Basin, must be understood as Global Natural Common.
