This Regional Act sets forth rules and principles governing the conservation of soil, which is deemed to be a non renewable resource, essential for the protection of landscapes and ecosystem preservation. The regional authority, as well as local entities, are responsible for coordinating development policies and the preservation of surfaces of agricultural lands. To this end the Act provides for the identification of agricultural lands falling within the regional territory (art. 2) and provides for the lease of land to young farmers.
