Policies have a crucial role in shaping lifestyles and enabling people to live in line with the objectives of the Paris Agreement.

Lifestyles are complex, dynamic, diverse and influenced by a wide range of factors but research shows that there are three categories of factors that play a decisive role: attitudes, facilitators, and infrastructure. Governments can affect all of these factors: attitudes by providing credible information, highlighting role models, and serving as a good example; facilitators for example by affecting prices through taxes and subsidies; and infrastructure by making public investments.
