Abstract: The water problem in the world has become an important issue for all countries. The decreasing amount of water we can leave to future generations has led many researchers around the world to take precautions and conduct studies before this situation becomes irreversible. Our country was a country that did not experience water shortage in the past years, but due to the increase in population and unconscious water use over the years, it is now among the countries suffering from water scarcity. This study aims to predict different scenarios that may arise in the future by determining the effects of water consumption and the status of existing resources after conducting research on the use of water resources of Konya Province. Another goal of this study is offering suggestions for sustainable management of Konya's water resources by using multi-criteria decision-making method or methods.
