A natural resource is a material that comes from the Earth and in its raw or “natural” state is of value for one reason or another. Thus, this paper was conducted to review use & misuse, strategies & policy of natural resources particularly soil and water conservation & regeneration interventions in Ethiopia. Soils have at least six main functions (uses) relevant to human life . It is to be noted that small-holder farming is the dominant feature of Ethiopia’s agriculture (Ethiopian Highland Reclamation Study of 1996). Soil; also bring into play for agricultural production, production of biomass. In Ethiopia, water; have multipurpose, for example, agricultural production, and hydropower but in some context misuse it such as polluting, overexploitation.
