Hon Lianne Dalziel

Christchurch City Council
Hon Lianne Dalziel graduated with a LLB from Canterbury University and was admitted to the Bar as a Barrister and Solicitor of the High Court of New Zealand in 1984.

Lianne is currently commencing her third term as Mayor of Christchurch, after serving for 23 years in the New Zealand Parliament as a Cabinet Minister in the 5th Labour Government under the leadership of Prime Minister Rt. Hon Helen Clark (1999-2008). During that time Lianne held a number of portfolios, including Commerce, which has provided a good background for her role in local government.

As a result of representing an electorate that was hard hit by the earthquakes that struck the city in 2010 / 2011 and developing a good understanding of post-disaster environments and opportunities, Lianne was invited to join the UNISDR’s Parliamentary Advisory Group on Disaster Risk Reduction in 2012.

Lianne has also spoken on these issues at a large number of international conferences. In her speeches she has emphasised making use of a resilience framework, and preparing for the unexpected, which also underpinned a response to the events of 15 March.
