Water resource systems have been an important part of resources and environment related research at IIASA since its inception. As demands for water increase relative to supply, the intensity and efficiency of water resources management must be developed further. This in turn requires an increase in the degree of detail and sophistication of the analysis, including economic, social and environmental evaluation of water resources development alternatives aided by application of mathematical modeling techniques, to generate inputs for planning, design, and operational decisions.

During the year of 1978 it was decided that parallel to the continuation of demand studies, an attempt would be made to integrate the results of our studies on water demands with water supply considerations. This new task was named "Regional Water Management" (Task 1, Resources and Environment Area).

The paper is part of a collaborative study on water resources problems in Western Skane, Sweden, pursued by IIASA in collaboration with the Swedish National Environment Protection Board and the University of Lund. The present paper looks at the agricultural demand for irrigation water. Irrigation is relatively new in the Skane region but is on the increase, making estimation of potential needs important.
