We discuss astrophysical scenarios relevant to the generation of gravitational waves (GW) and effects expected to arise from the interaction of GW and electromagnetic (EM) radiation. A strong programme of coordinated GW and EM astrophysical studies must be established in order to ensure the exploitation of the full scientific potential of the LISA mission. We describe on-going astrophysical work, and suggest alternative approaches to current studies, which are relevant to these considerations.
