Abstract: 
Changing in urban life, climate change and successive droughts and floods have caused the issue of restoration of rivers to become one of the most important environmental issues and water resources problems. In recent years, the lack of attention to environmental issues, improper exploitation of water resources, ignoring sustainable development, changes in natural structure and channelization of urban river have created undesirable conditions for urban rivers. This study tries to develop and select the best strategy to achieve river restoration by considering six sustainable development criteria and using the hybrid model of Analytical Hierarchy Process and Modified Technique for Order of Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution (M-TOPSIS-AHP) and taking into account two goals of quantitative and qualitative restoration of base flow and securing against flood. The required data was collected through survey forms that have been filled by 38 experts in the field of water resources management. The inconsistency rates of surveys forms were investigated and inconsistent forms were removed. Then the pairwise comparison of AHP method was used to obtain the relative weights and finally the strategies were ranked by TOPSIS method and the best strategy was introduced.
