A multi-objective analysis is presented considering the consumption of fresh water, the greenhouse gas emissions and the cost of the integrated system as objective functions. As case study, the community with the lowest index of poverty and marginalization from the State of Guerrero in Mexico is presented. The results show that it is possible to satisfy the water, energy and food needs in isolated communities accounting for integrated processes. Besides, it is possible to obtain trade-off solutions considering contradicting objectives.
