Lianne Dalziel, Mayor of Christchurch, NZ
Hon Lianne Dalziel (LLB) is serving her third term as Mayor of Ōtautahi Christchurch after serving for 23 years in the New Zealand Parliament (1990-2013). As a result of representing an electorate that was hard hit by the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011, and developing a strong understanding of post-disaster challenges and opportunities, Lianne has become a champion of disaster risk reduction and resilience.
