Jerry Buckland, a Canadian Mennonite University Professor of International Development Studies (based at the University of Winnipeg), does research in the field of financial resilience and inclusion including First Nations and Indigenous Communities. One area he is interested in is the relationship between financial resilience and natural resource management, including hydro development projects. Some of his research has found that First Nations have had little inclusion in hydroelectric development projects, including both financial consultation and the co-management of natural resources. Other countries like Australia are facing similar conflicts to Canada when it comes to financial involvement in large resource development projects. In cooperation with the College of Business at RMIT University in Melbourne, Jerry Buckland’s research has drawn comparisons regarding financial resilience and of Indigenous engagement in hydro development in Canada to natural resource planning in Australia.
