Today the NR bases of the country are heavily suffering widespread improper and unwise utilization resulting in their rapid degradation. Deforestation, desertification, loss of biodiversity, soil erosion, soil fertility decline, soil acidification, salinization, environmental pollution and climate change are some of the major expressions of natural resources problems in the contemporary Ethiopia. As more users place demands on the scarce environmental resources, the need for intelligent conservation and rational management of the natural assets is ever greater, the very concept of sustainable development. The fundamental principle of sustainable development entails that the use of natural resources by a generation should not compromise (i) their roles in maintaining natural ecological balance, (ii) their position in environmental quality and integrity, and (iii) their quantity and quality such that successive generations could also satisfy their needs.
