65.2. The Minister may recognize an area as a man-made landscape.
The purpose of the “man-made landscape” status is to protect the biodiversity of an inhabited area, whether land or water, where the landscape and its natural components have been shaped, over time, by human activities in harmony with nature and have distinctive features the conservation of which depends to a large extent on the continuation of the practices that originally shaped them.
The recognition may be perpetual or may be granted for a term which may not be less than 25 years.
