In recent years and with the intensification of international sanctions against Iran, the supreme leader of the Islamic Revolution has proposed a new approach to economics called resistance economy with the aim of overcoming the country's economic problems and improving the livelihood of the people. Now, after a few years of this plan, we have evaluated, in this study, the results of this plan in the Water Section of the Sixth 5-Years Economic, Social and Cultural Development Plan of the Islamic Republic of Iran using the portfolio management theory to address and examine the challenges of this perspective. The findings of the study indicated that Iran has faced lots of problems and difficulties since the sanctions and on the other hand, weak management in agriculture, water and production resources in this section can be clearly seen. Accordingly, application of modern management methods in irrigation and the exploitation of Iran's water resources as well as the formation of a specialized water commission in the parliament along with the public participation are suggested.
