Principles report draft now open for public comment

Dear all,

As many of you know, over the past year I’ve worked to capture your voices
and perspectives during the community discussion of the Principles for
Digital Development. A draft of the synthesis report, From Principle to
Practice: Implementing the Principles for Digital Development
, is
now available for public comment.

The goal of the report is to provide development decision-makers with
practical, actionable guidance about how to operationalize the Principles,
and how to overcome common barriers in moving from Principle to practice.
The draft is being shared with you, the practitioner community, to welcome
your inputs in creating a strong final product.

There are two mechanisms through which you can provide input to the draft:

  1. Use comments in the margin to highlight inaccuracies,
    inconsistencies, or other areas needing improvement.

  2. Use this survey to
    provide more detailed, substantive information, including suggested
    barriers, recommendations, perspectives, resources/tools, and case studies
    that could be added.

Thank you to those who have already contributed case studies through the
online case study submission form. We are still working on moving these
into the resources section at A number of the
case studies that will be added to the website also will be highlighted in
the final version of this report.

Last but not least, we would like to be able to share a robust list of
endorsing organizations in the final report. If your organization has not
already endorsed the Principles, please consider doing so now so that we
may include your organization in the final report.

Thanks, in advance, for your review and input.

Best regards,
