'Co-creating Alignment & Synergy'
Reinstating the Earth is one of the most urgent multidisciplinary challenges that humanity is now facing. Moreover, it requires the commitment of everyone. To achieve it, people in their communities (village, town, etc.) can design local action plans based on their shared vision.
To optimise the implementation of these plans, they will take into account the needs of these local people, the opportunities for collaboration and the sharing of resources at different scales. This also means improving the way we do things. To strengthen co-creation and achieve real impact, this book introduces the concept of Alignment & Synergy (A&S).

How to realise the Vision to restore the Earth
Alignment & Synergy reverses compartmentalisation and fragmentation by aligning stakeholders and realising the shared vision through the synergy of the activities of different actors.
The book first explains the need for A&S and describes the prerequisites. Using practical examples from integrated development projects, it highlights the potential types of synergies for A&S over short and long distances. The importance of a multi-scale approach to designing a local action plan is emphasised. To increase the opportunities for A&S between current and future actors and to draw on the experience of past actors, a form is included to capture the essential information of their activities. Although the focus has been on the land and water sectors in some African countries, the A&S principles are applicable everywhere.
One of the conclusions is that A&S can improve collaboration between people, projects and social and commercial organisations. This can increase the impact of all actors to reinstate the Earth and humanity. It has become a practical book that invites you to work with a group to realise the shared vision.
In this way, this book elaborates on the chapter on sovereignty, authority and carefulness in our 2022 book entitled 'Reinstate the Original Human Being'.
