Our Mission

To educate the importance of SDG2030 to world population and to achieve the SDG Goals by providing professional courses for continuing education and lifelong learning opportunities 

About The University

The 2030 agenda comprising of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) aims to end poverty and deprivation from the Globe, sustain the planet’s resources and preserve the climate and environment. The agenda was adopted in 2015 and now after five years, three billion people in developing countries, who are the largest producer of food for world’s consumption, suffer from mal-nutrient, climate changes, drought, floods, lack of resources such as fertilizers, seeds etc, and market shocks. The problem can be tackled by adopting Knowledge AgricultureTM for which a massive program of educating and upgrading the skills of farmers are required. Execution of technology assisted skill development projects in part of India and Ethiopia and their sustained monitoring for many years by us showed inspiring changes in rural behaviour and willingness of farmers and related population to adopt the new technology.

WDF University for SDG2030 has been established with a mission to educate  & train farming and other populace to increase their income by use of modern methods using broadcasting & Communication technologies and also make an effort to introduce high level technologies such as IOT, Robotics, UAV  to automate and spread knowledge in the fields of education, agriculture, healthcare, livelihood generation and removal of ignorance.

SDG2030

The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by International Community in September 2015, seek to address issues relating to hunger, poverty alleviation, democratic governance and peace building, climate change and disaster risk, and economic inequality. The SDGs and targets are intertwined. Almost all the SDGs relate to sustainable agriculture. The pathway of linkage is either direct (like in the case of SDG2 on ending hunger and achieving food insecurity) or indirect like SDG 8 on promoting sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth (which can only be achieved if agricultural growth encompasses marginal and small farmers, women farmers etc.). Many countries of the world have started including these into their national development frameworks, action plans and budgets.

The 2030 Agenda and its enshrined goals, embracing the economic, social, and environmental perspectives of sustainable development provide a historic and promising opportunity for the well being of the world’s future generations and the planet.

Knowledge AgricultureTM

Knowledge AgricultureTM is a process which uses technology and tools such as Greenhouse, IOT (Internet of Things), Robotics, AI (Artificial Intelligence), UAV (unmanned aerial vehicles) and specialized software for weather modelling, smart zone seeding, fertilizer modelling, Country’s income is directly related to education of its people and ICT penetration. The focus area is education and skill development. The challenge with the informed society is to communicate with people in their own language and impart knowledge and skill to enable them to earn their livelihood and improve their living conditions. Execution of technology assisted knowledge & skill development projects and their sustained monitoring for many years by us showed inspiring changes in rural behavior and willingness of learners to adopt the new technology. The University is launching courses on few tools and technology that can be used to attain SDG2030 especially for agriculture and education.
