Water sharing management is the major problem for water resources and irrigation management decision makers. However, irrigation systems are very complex and interconnected, posing significant difficulties in managing irrigation economically and environmentally. Therefore, it is imperative that innovative modelling approaches are employed to deal with the feedback loops inherent in these systems. Through the application of a system dynamics approach, a Network Simulation Model (NSM) was developed. The purpose of the NSM is to measure and identify the change in economic and environmental outputs of various allocations and demand scenarios. The aim of this study is to examine the use of two me..
