Abstract: Regionalization of soil and water conservation is the basis for the planning of soil and water conservation in China. It can provide scientific basis for constructing healthy ecological environments and regional management and development. It makes a brief review of related regionalization of study and makes clear the concept of regionalization of soil and water conservation. In this paper, based on synthetical analysis of the characteristics of ecological environments of China, the principles, indices and nomenclature of the regionalization of soil and water conservation are proposed. Through the construction of the regionalization of soil and water conservation collaboration platform and data reporting system, combined with the existing soil and water conservation research, this paper uses the top-down and bottom-up and the combination of qualitative and quantitative methods to build soil and water conservation regionalization preliminary scheme, with 8 regions, 41 subregions and 117 sections divided across the country.

Key words: soil and water conservation, soil and water loss, regionalization, indices system, classification, China
