Simplification of agricultural systems, farmland abandonment, uncontrolled urbanization, together with global scaledrivers, determine fast and unpredictable phenomena of hydrogeological instability, biodiversity decline and identityloss.Men should hence promote socio-economic resilience and place identity, using biocultural landscapes as a resource.These landscapes are the outcome of the historical relationship between man and nature, resulting from complexinteractions between biodiversity (at all levels, including species richness, ecosystem and biotope diversity) andcultural diversity, including material and immaterial aspects (architectural heritage, traditions, customs, localtraditional agricultural practices, dialectal culture).Traditional water use is one of the main defining factors of traditional agricultural landscapes, characterized bysignificantly multiplied and enhanced functions and by the highest degree of biocultural diversity. The integrity oftraditional agricultural landscapes is an indicator of environmental sustainability, socio-economic growth and habitatresilience. Land management and planning should promote the multi-functionality of biocultural landscapes throughnew interdisciplinary frameworks and innovative strategies, aimed at landscape conservation, enhancement andcreative management.
