The Golden Rice humanitarian project has been recognized by Project
Management Institute (PMI) as one of the Most Influential Projects of the
past 50 years. It has the distinction of being the only plant-based biotech
project in the list of honorees.

Golden Rice is a not-for-profit project, which means that individuals and
organizations involved in its development have no financial stakes in the
crop. The technology was donated by its inventors, Professors Ingo Potrykus
and Peter Beyer in 2000 to aid resource-poor countries and address the
global concern of Vitamin A deficiency. To date, Golden Rice has been
declared safe in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the USA. Prof. Ingo
Potrykus stated, "Hopefully in my lifetime, you, and I, will start to see
Golden Rice saving the sight and lives of some of the 3.5 billion people,
half the world's population, who consume rice, and often little else, every

The Most Influential Projects list is part of PMI's 50th anniversary
celebration and aims to celebrate project work across the world and raise
awareness on its positive results.
