Kent Buse and Sarah Hawkes argue that success in realizing the agenda requires a paradigm shift in the way we address global health to surmount five challenges: 1) ensuring leadership for intersectoral coherence and coordination on the structural (including social, economic, political and legal) drivers of health; 2) shifting the focus from treatment to prevention through locally-led, politically-smart approaches to a far broader agenda; 3) identifying effective means to tackle the commercial determinants of ill-health; 4) further integrating rights-based approaches; and 5) enhancing civic engagement and ensuring accountability. We are concerned that neither the international community nor the global health community truly appreciates the extent of the shift required to implement this health agenda which is a critical determinant of sustainable development.

From 29 February to 25 March 2016 “Follow up-and review” is addressed in the 2016 ECOSOC e-Discussion, organized by UN DESA and UNDP:
The application of these principles without using a Collaborative Planning Methodology is likely to delay delivery of results, as proponents may get stuck in an analysis paralysis anti-pattern.
It is in order to prevent such anti-pattern from occurring in "data driven inclusive discourse and development" initiatives that the wikiworx systematized content commons are being developed. This is explained in initiative management.
The Addis Ababa Action Agenda enhanced with a Collaborative Planning Method that is aware of the various levels of scope (at which results must be achieved) can provide a framework for the efficient and effective application of the digital principles.

Critics argue that Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) is a provision in international and multi-lateral trade agreements that allows big companies to sue governments when they have made democratic choices with negative consequences for companies.
Does this article go far enough in addressing the risks that ISDS pose for developing country governments and their constituencies?
The current status regarding ISDS is summarized in this article: EU and OPEC contribute to increase transparency in ISDS (by Alliance for Responsible Commerce).

Critics argue that ISDS is a provision that allows big companies to sue governments when they have made democratic choices with negative consequences for companies.
Does article 91 - Safeguards so as not to constrain domestic policies and regulation in the public interest go far enough in addressing the risks that ISDS pose for developing country governments and their constituencies?
in discussion Hidden / Per page discussions » Ownership of development priorities by the target constituency
This principle is repeated regularly as can be seen from Common Principles : Ownership of development priorities by the target constituency.
The UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 can be an instrument for citizens and civil society organisations who want to contribute to achieve #SDG8 - Promote sustained, inclusive & sustainable economic growth, full & productive employment & decent work for all.
Check this paper by @LibertyAsia: The UK Modern Slavery Act 2015: Implications for Asia (pdf).
Mitigation are the efforts to reduce/prevent the emission of greenhouse gases or to enhance their removal from the atmosphere by sinks (such as forests).
The principles stated mean a departure from past (implicit) assumptions and principles that mostly caused the ''underharvesting'' of the(government) data.
These principles can be considered ''societal'' architecture principles. When governments implement new services, they should be guided by them.
On the other hand, when civil or public actors notice that services do not comply with the principles, they can refer to them in their advocacy and calls for compliance.
In summary: all stakeholders have now an instrument for reference in the transition towards more open government.
The impact of the Charter will therefore depend on at least these factors:
- the ability of civil society and the public sector actors to utilize the principles in their advocacy work;
- the sectors of government in which the charter's principles get a high priority.
The announced action plans will be an indicator for the second factor.
