Ms. Haiyan Qian, devoted wife to Saijin Zhang, loving mother to Nisi Zhang, and dedicated International Civil Servant for the United Nations, died on the morning of 18 February 2013 at the age of 57 after a heroic battle with cancer.

Throughout the past 33 years, Ms. Qian dedicated her career to global public policy, governance, science and technology, public administration and development. Early on, Ms. Qian worked for the Chinese Government in the area of science and technology for development and served in the Chinese Permanent Mission to the United Nations based in New York, covering the United Nations Second Committee on Economic and Social Affairs. In 1988, she joined the United Nations and worked for a number of UN agencies, including the Centre for Science and Technology for Development and UNEP’s Centre on Environmentally Sound Technology in Japan. Ms. Qian then joined the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA), where she served as Chief Manager of the United Nations Public Administration Network (UNPAN) and Chief of the Knowledge Management Branch before becoming Director of the Division for Public Administration and Development Management (DPADM) on 1 February 2009. 

As noted by Mr. Hongbo Wu, Under Secretary-General for Economic and Social Affairs, “Haiyan was a wonderful colleague and a great asset to the UN. Her dedicated service to the Organization’s goals is a source of inspiration to us all.”

Ms. Qian left a legacy founded on hard work, dedicated service and loyalty. She was a visionary leader who was admired and respected by all her colleagues and others in the field of public administration from around the world.

Ms. Qian received her Bachelor of Arts in Beijing, China and her Master in Public Administration from the Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University, USA.
