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).

One of the case studies in this Task, carried out in collaboration with the Swedish Environmental Protection Board and the University of Lund, is the region of Western Skane, Sweden. Although the Task emphasizes demand-resource integration, some analysis of the demand per se is necessary for better understanding of demand-generating factors. In this paper, background analysis concerning the municipal water demand characteristics of and the data base available for the region is presented with some preliminary results.
