Abstract: This report, following a brief review of literature on the topic, describes the process and product of an interview investigation of the science-policy interface in the WCR conducted as part of the  Regional Governance Framework (RGF) consultancy with the CLME project. The report contributes to developing the RGF and formulating a Strategic Action Programme (SAP) as the next major stage of the CLME project. The target audiences are all CLME participants and interested parties. Findings should be of particular interest to those dealing with the Information Management System and Regional Environmental Monitoring Programme. Twenty countries and four regional organisations were  surveyed, resulting in 103 respondents from 73 interviews across the organizations and government ministries concerned with environment, fisheries, foreign affairs and tourism that were targeted.
