According to the religious beliefs, human arises from soil and come back to his origin. The role of the soil is of vital importance to mankind and the maintenance of a healthy natural environment. The soil is a natural resource, which is not renewable in the short term and very expensive either to reclaim or to improve once it is eroded by water or wind, physically degraded or chemically depleted. Over the past three decades, there has been an increased awareness of the impact of growing human populations and the consequent pressures on environment and this has led to a number of important initiatives such as the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete Ozone, the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) Plan of Action (Agenda 21) and the three Conventions arising from UNCED, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD). Of the various anthropogenic actions that these initiatives address, land/soil degradation is perhaps the most visible as it affects more human lives than other anthropogenic actions. In this paper, has been introduced soil degradation as main parameter to ruin earth and discussed influences of human activities in its process in the recent decades. Ultimately, it has been tried to invest factors on combating soil degradation.
