To address the challenges additional finance is required so, the study of climate finance governance was very crucial. The study aimed to increase the understanding of the state of climate governance and identied the gaps. The climate change policy 2011 states that 80 percent of total available fund should reach the community level. In reality less than half of fund actually reached the local level.
