    "Soil erosion and water loss" is the one I would say. No specific reason why, other than it's the most native-sounding.

     

    There is little difference, unless the larger context of the phrase would change the meaning. Does water loss lead to soil erosion? In which case:

    "The region has experienced profound water loss and soil erosion."
