The Veluwerandmeren were formed after the creation of the eastern part of the province of Flevoland. It is a diverse but fragile area with a variety of functions. The project Veluwerandmeren is initiated in 1996 to integrate different legislation and plans for the area and is a cooperation between 19 governmental agencies.

The goal of the project is to maintain and strengthen the balance between recreation, nature and economics. The governance aspects of this project are analysed in order to define lessons learned for the Building with Nature pilots.
