During the TLJ#6, the policy context of Lombardy will be reviewed. To get ready for this session, we have prepared for you a series of five articles presenting the policy instruments that will be under study in the framework of the LCA4Regions project. Each of the article focuses on one or two specific policies, programmes or plans and analyses the typologies of policy tools producible under the regional responsibility and their hierarchical role in the local policy making. It also includes a general understanding of the use of LCA in its policies.
