Complex adaptive system theory is a new and important embranchment of system science, which provides a new thought to research water resources allocation system. Based on the analysis of complexity and complex adaptive mechanism of water resources allocation system, a fairly-new analysis model is presented in this paper. With the description of dynamical mechanism of system, behavior characters of agents and the evaluation method of system status, an integrated research system is built to analyse the evolvement rule of water resources allocation system. And a brief research of the impact of water resources allocation on beneficial regions of the Water Transfer Project from South China to North China is conducted.
