Zoning of water resources management of river basin is very important for making policies of water resources management. Based on 30 indexes divided into environmental, food, water resources and soCioeconomic groups, the paper uses Cluster Analysis and GIS to analyze clustering proCesses, and to make the project for zoning by means of management experiences. According to analytical results, the Haihe River Basin is divided into 7 zones: Taihang and Yanshan mountainous zone, piedmont diluvial/alluvial zone, Beijing-Tianjin-Tangshan region (zone), piedmont plain zone, middle and eastern plain zone, Tianjin downtown area (zone), and Tuhai Majia River plain. This result accords with water resources management in the Haihe River Basin. Because of different problems, it is imperative to make water resources management policies for different zones.

Key words: the Haihe River Basin, water resources management zoning, index system
