In the present work, utilizing the two dimensional equations of an incompressible inviscid fluid and the reductive perturbation method we studied the propagation of weakly nonlinear waves in water of variable depth. For the case of slowly varying depth, the evolution equation is obtained as the variable coefficient Korteweg-de Vries (KdV) equation. Due to the difficulties for the analytical solutions, a numerical technics so called "the method of integrating factor" is used and the evolution equation is solved under a given initial condition and the bottom topography. It is observed the parameters of bottom topography causes to the changes in wave amplitude, wave profile and the wave speed.
