The problems of the use of water resources in Central Asia are investigated by considering the sovereignty of the states and the increasing demand for water for economic development. A complex program is proposed and presented, with appropriate mathematical software, intended to aid in the calculation of the possible alternative strategies for using the Amudarya's upstream water resources to satisfy the apparently incompatible requirements of the national economies in irrigation and energy generation.
