This chapter deliberately deviates from the standard genre of a handbook chapter and takes the liberty to take a vantage point of a policy intervention designer. It is best read together with chapter 18 on consumption policies and their theoretical underpinnings on which we build upon. Since the above-mentioned chapter charts the broader conceptual map of policies, this chapter will zoom in on particular issues for an intervention designer, taking social practice theory (SPT) as the basis. Although it is a bundle of related theories and using a singular does not do justice to this multiplicity, we use it as a broader umbrella term for a set of approaches that have several commonalities (see e.g. chapter 3).
