    The various soil conservation policies that have been reported in the literature are reviewed under two headings: namely, policies that influence remunerative considerations and those that influence nonremunerative considerations. The remunerative policies include incentives at the micro and macro levels, whilst the nonremunerative policies deal with issues such as property rights, education and population pressures. The assembly of the various soil conservation policies reveals a synonymity of these policies with those recommended for overall economic development.
