The Department of National Parks and Wildlife Conservation (DNPWC) is the administrative authority in Nepal of the Ramsar Convention; management authority of the fauna under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES); and focal institution of the World Heritage Convention (UNESCO), Global Tiger Forum (GTF) and Convention on Biodiversity (CBD).

Works on national parks and wildlife conservation had begun with the establishment of Conservation Section under the Department of Forest in 1972. In the context of growing importance of the national parks and the wildlife reserves in the country, and with the objectives of improving its institutional structure, further strengthening and making the management of the National Parks and Wildlife Reserves more effective, the Department of National Parks and Wildlife Conservation was set up as a separate entity under the Ministry of Forest and Soil Conservation in 1980.
