This paper introduces a model developed to provide a rational framework for water resources management of a watershed in Algarve - the Guadiana basin. The model is basically a system dynamics model interfaced with multiobjective programming formulations. The definition of water supply and demand sectors is an essential component of the model which attempts to provide a tool to evaluate the effects of different strategies controlling water supply and demand upon a set of impact variables. The model was run using a simulation period of 10 years.
