Mehari Gebreyohannes Hiben*, Admasu Gebeyehu Awoke and Abraha Adugna Ashenafi

The aim of this study was to assess the hydrological and water resource management model in the Ghba River subbasin that could be used for resilient water allocation strategies. Water allocation is the most important sector with regard to water resources management due to its social, economic, hydrological, and environmental aspects, and many scholars and researchers have been driven to investigate the dynamic interrelationships among hydrological, environmental, and socioeconomic factors affecting water allocation.
This review is seeking to include a comprehensive survey of existing publications and scholarly papers on the use of the WEAP modeling system as an effective tool for dealing with different problems associated with planning, management, and analysis of hydrology and water resources systems. Recent trends in the integration of WEAP modeling with other modeling systems, such as artificial intelligence systems, are discussed. Some of the limitations and challenges facing the application are highlighted. This article provides a foundation of references and studies which will help scholars, researchers, and academics who are interested in using the WEAP modeling system in combination with hydrology and water resources management and planning.
