After half a century of failed soil and water conservation projects in tropical developing countries, technical specialists and policy makers are reconsidering their strategy. It is increasingly recognised in Malwa region that the land users have valuable environmental knowledge themselves. This review explores two hypotheses: first, that much can be learned from previously ignored indigenous soil and water conservation practices; second, that can habitually act as a suitable starting point for the development of technologies and programmes. However, information on ISWC (Indigenous Soil and Water Conservation) is patchy and scattered.  Total 14 indigenous Soil and water Conservation practises have been identified in the area. Result showed that these techniques were more suitable accord to geographic location.
