SEAs of Regional Operational Programme of the european regional development fund and Rural Development Programme 2014-2020 of Lombardy region

Poliedra has been assigned by Lombardy Region to carry out the SEAs of Regional Competitiveness Operational Programme – ERDF and Rural Development Programme – EAFRD (EU 2014-2020). The coordination of the two SEAs may allow to enhance the potential synergies of the two programmes.

The approach considers four cross-cutting themes (climate change and adaptation, green economy, health and quality of natural resources and governance), useful to evaluate the cumulative environmental effects of the two programmes.

It’s also provided a general description of resources, suitable elements and critical issues distinguishing Lombardy (vulnerability and resilience elements), in order to identify areas and activities to which lead funds allocation to gain the greatest benefit and to limit environmental costs. The added value of this approach lies in its territorial characterization, which allows a detailed evaluation of the strategies. The analysis moves from the identification of dynamics acting on the different and peculiar territories and from the characteristics of the Regional environmental and landscape asset of Lombardy Region.
